Things to do on Boxing Day in London
Christmas Day might be over but the festive fun doesn't have to stop just yet...
What's on in London on Boxing Day?
Off-load your unwanted Xmas pressies at this Boxing Day carboot. Bonzer Bootsales, dealing mainly in second hand goods, takes place in three locations across Essex.
Why not splash your Christmas cash at Old Spitalfields Market this Boxing Day? The covered forecourt of the modernised market offers up the usual range of fur stoles and tureens of 'retro' cutlery, but there are many diamonds to be found in the rough. Turn up at 8am to fight off the antiques dealers for the best pieces, which on our last visit ranged from a late Georgian chaise lounge (reasonable at £400) and bronze art deco mirrors. After the early morning rush, the rest of the day is quieter if you just fancy an idle browse. There's a plethora of antique furniture still available at 3pm, and often at more favourable prices as traders decide to cut losses.
It's the night before Christmas and there's nothing to do, but with our handy guide Christmas Eve is fun, too
