24-hour bus routes will operate from 6am and will operate on a Sunday night service

No.96 bus will operate a Saturday service




Circle line No service between Edgware Road and Aldgate (via Victoria). The service between Hammersmith and Aldgate will operate 10.30am–8.30pm.

District line No service between Embankment and Ealing Common, Wimbledon, Richmond, Edgware Road and Kensington (Olympia).

General advice

Obviously stations in and around central London will most likely be crammed, especially the West End and anywhere with Boxing Day sales. You have been warned.
