The Christmas Lights on Oxford and Regent street (a bit 'marmite' though!)

Selfridges and Fortnum's Christmas windows.

The Christmas Tree in Trafalgar Square.

The inside of a nice pub!

Avoid shops, which will be manic. Bear in mind, Christmas Eve afternoon tends to be when locals start to spend family time. Plenty of places will shut early.

Public transport is taking a break, the shops are closed, but plenty of cabs and minicabs are still available for hire...there are some things happening around on Christmas Day...I hope this will be helpful http://www.timeout.com/london/christmas/ :)

Selfridges, Hamleys and Fortnum & Masons windows are always better than the street lights.
