What To Do In London, If You DON'T Want To Hit The Sales

The chocolates have been polished off, the festive tipples drunk, and the turkey sandwiches made. Now, it's finally time to kick back and unwind after all that festive stress. Or is it?
Boxing Day may spell S-A-L-E-S for some, but there are those of us who favor a quieter alternative. Do you prefer a crisp, early morning dip in a heated, outdoor pool? Or, maybe you'd like to take in some soothing classical music? If you're looking for some Boxing Day-fun that doesn't involve shopping, then this round up is tailor-made for you.
Ahead, check out the five things to do this December 26. We promise, there’s not a single fitting-room queue in sight. Thank goodness.
