Westminster Abbey is #14 in our London Bucket List

Tourists are often surprised to find London looking like a ghost town on Christmas Day. All of the theatres, galleries and attractions are closed — even the buses and trains stop running — but there are still one of two things that are well-worth doing.

How about attending the Sung Eucharist at Westminster Abbey? It's a traditional service with a sermon and Holy Communion, and beautiful music from the Abbey Choir.

It's totally free and you don't even need a ticket, but if you're thinking of attending then you should try and get there early because the seats are sure to fill up.

P.S. There's another service at St. Paul's Cathedral, but if want something an extra little bit special then why not try their midnight mass on Christmas Eve?
