16 Things That Happened In London To Prove 2016 Wasn’t Sooooo Bad

There’s a lot of talk flying around that 2016 wasn’t one of the best years for the world and London. We say, nay! There’s plenty of cheery things to look back on…


1. The Night Tube finally launched on 5 lines.

A year late, but yay!


2. And with the Night Tube came these ingenious signs.

So, all in all, a great year!
