Whatever scandal may arise from sharing one too many drinks with your colleagues, one local authority is urging those descending to the pubs and bars to plan ahead when travelling home.
Westminster Council is expecting large numbers of people to come to the area for Christmas parties, and has launched the Get Home Safe campaign.
It includes information on how to stay safe when out in Westminster , as well as a journey planner with text alerts for the last train home and information on the Night Tube.
The council is running the programme with the Met Police and Transport for London .
Cllr Nickie Aiken, head of public protection at the council and expected to be its new leader in the new year , said: “We want people to enjoy themselves in Westminster this Christmas.
"Taking some time to plan how you will get home after your night out is well worth it, especially given the changes to night tubes.
“This is the most wonderful time of the year and we want Christmas and New Year partygoers to have fun and stay safe in Westminster.”
Inspector Richard Jary, West End Neighbourhood Policing Team, Metropolitan Police , said: “Christmas brings many people to the West End to enjoy the festivities.
"We want everyone to have a good time and to be safe.
"This year has seen a change in how people travel especially with the night tubes and we are ensuring this is incorporated into our Christmas policing plan.
“If visiting us this Christmas, please make sure that you plan ahead and know how you are getting home, even before your night out has begun.”
