There's not a lot to do in London in Christmas Day. All the theatres, galleries and attractions are closed, so all that's left to do is a nice relaxing stroll around the deserted streets.

How about attending a church service at St. Paul's Cathedral as well? Even if you're not religious, it's still definitely a memorable experience. There are four services to choose from...

8 AM -- Holy Communion (Book of Common Prayer)

8.45 AM — Morning Prayer

11 AM -- Eucharist, with Christmas carols and festive music sung by the Cathedral Choir. This is a really joyful celebration on Christmas morning, with the Bishop of London presiding and preaching.

3.15 PM -- Festal Evensong. A traditional service with seasonal music and Christmas carols, sung by the Cathedral Choir.

Note: Tickets are not required for any of these services, but you should be aware that space in the Cathedral is limited, and you should try and arrive early to be sure of a place.
