Eat, Pace, Plan

First things first, if you’re planning on drinking alcohol, eat beforehand! You know what they say about drinking on an empty stomach. Going alcohol-free? Good on you; there are plenty of options for you to enjoy just as much as the real thing. If you are drinking on the other hand, know your limits and pace yourself. The NHS One You – Drink Less app is perfect for keeping track of how much you’re drinking and spending.

Keep a water bottle handy throughout the day (you’ll thank yourself the next morning) and guard your drinks — along with other valuables like your bag and phone. Thinking about walking home? Don’t go it alone, especially if you’ve had a long day drinking. Look after those who need to find their way back, and remember: you’ll still have alcohol in your system the morning after, so don’t drive!

Travelling to Central London

Travel into and around Central London will be extremely busy, so please take extra caution and plan ahead where possible to avoid delays.
