What to do in London on Boxing Day
If you want to make the most of your vacation and not lose out on a single day of it, following Time Out's guide to Boxing Day activities could be a great idea. Apparently, not everything shuts up shop and there are still lots of things for the eager tourist to get up to.
For example, the Charles Dickens Museum - which is where the author himself lived between 1837 and 1839 - is still accessible by the public and if this takes your fancy, you'll be able to take in a few readings of some of his timeless classics, seated in the library. Alternatively, you could watch some of the film adaptations of A Christmas Carol, while supping on some mulled wine. Magical!
However, if that doesn't do it for you and your tastes are somewhat more modern, paying a visit to the Movieum of London might also be a lot of fun. It's open until December 31st and you'll be able to take in some delights from the silver screen, from movies such as The Italian Job, Star Wars and Batman. What's more, cameras are available to rent so you can even make your own renditions of these masterpieces.
And on Christmas Day, don't forget to head to Hyde Park to watch members of the Serpentine Club do a 100-yard race in the lake.
