Boxing Day- What to Do ???

Hi all. Me again. Family of six going to be staying in Kensington over Xmas- and will still be in town on Boxing Day- While I know museums are closed that day will there be plenty of things still to do and see and places to eat?- eg shopping especially - and if so what areas would you recommend for lets say not over the top prices but nice stores ? Thanks so much ! Really appreciate the help

BTW is public transportation open on Boxing Day ?

By midday, almost all public transport will be up and running again, but remember there may be lots of planned engineering work during the week after Christmas.

Lots of Boxing Day sales will be on in the shops from Kensington to Knightsbridge, and especially along Oxford St. You can join the hoards if you want, or just watch from afar.

Some attractions are open on Boxing Day. Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park for example. The parks will be open of course. You could join a bike tour or wander along the Southbank. Many things to do.

Most restaurants and cafes will be open as well.
