There's not a lot to do in London on Christmas Day. All the theatres, galleries and attractions are closed, so how about attending a church service at St. Paul's Cathedral instead? It will be a special experience even if you're not religious.
There are four different services to choose from:
8 AM to 8.30 AM -- Holy Communion
8.45 AM to 9.15 AM -- Morning Prayer
