What's more, the home cook can take the day off as there is an abundance of restaurants and bars open on this festive day offering a Christmas Day feast.
But before heading off for a big lunch, you can leave your cheap accommodation in London and go to Hyde Park to witness a very special event.
When and where:
Every December 25th, the Peter Pan Cup Swimming Race takes place at the Serpentine Boating Lake in Hyde Park.
This traditional event, which has been running since 1864, sees hardy members of the Serpentine Swimming Club plunge into the lake's icy waters on Christmas morning.
It is free to watch, with the race usually starting at 9am, and it really is a treat that is usually seen on TV.
What a great day to start your Christmas Day in London as Hyde Park will be waiting to be explored while Kensington, which is home to plenty of posh eateries, is just down the road.
