London is at its most peaceful and tranquil on December 25, which is the last day of the year. If you aren’t a fan of the idea that London must be shut down or don’t want to celebrate Christmas, there is still plenty you can do in the city. You can walk around the city, even though public transport is not available, and eat at one of the few restaurants. You can then go home to eat Quality Streets in front the TV. These are just a few of the many things you can do in London on Christmas Day.
1. London’s streets sparkle
Although you won’t see many people on December 25, the capital’s spectacular Christmas lights will still sparkle. A tour of the capital’s finest crimbo decorations will be made even more magical by empty streets and clear views. It’s a great way to add sparkle to your Christmas Day stroll if you live close to central London.
2. Chinatown is your destination
If you are looking for a casual meal, London’s Chinatown can be found. The majority of restaurants remain open as normal. There’s nothing quite like Christmas bowls of dan dan noodles.
3. Ride around the city
The tube is not available on Christmas Day. There are other ways around the city. While the rest of London lounges on the sofa, you can ride along London’s abandoned cycle lanes and parks on your bike.
4. Visit a London park
Yes, it is cold outside. Yes, it’s cold outside. We are fortunate to have amazing parks throughout London, so walking around them is a great way to spend Christmas Day in London. Get out there and enjoy green space.
5. Christmas at Leadenhall market
The City of London is a ghost town during Christmas and New Year. There are no offices, only a few coffee shops and boozers, and streets that are empty. Leadenhall Market, which is a great place to take a walk and seems especially magical (appropriately given its role as Diagon Alley from the Harry Potter films), is a wonderful spot for strolling. Although the shops are closed (the jewellers are particularly odd), the Christmas lights are on so you can enjoy the beautiful Victorian architecture and atmosphere.
