The Nocturne is a 1.2km, closed road cycling 'criterium' with a series of races over the course of the day and night, held in a central London location. The event is an established highlight of London’s event calendar and has been running since 2007. It was held in Smithfield Market, Farringdon before moving in 2016 to the City of London.
