"London Underground Closures" Tube (Underground, Subway, Metro). Tip by dwh2011

Tube (Underground, Subway, Metro)., London: 422 reviews and 435 photos

Yes, December can be very cold but there are lots of things to see and do during the Christmas season. I was there last December. My flight going was re-scheduled bec. Heathrow shut down due to unprecedented snowfall. Thought my trip was ruined but no, it was a wonderful experience once there.

If you intend to use public transport (the most practical and economical way to go) around the city, check London station closures at http://www.tfl.gov.uk/tfl/livetravelnews/realtime/tube/default.html before you venture out. They are updating and renovating several stations and there are scheduled closures. They do have alternative routes and replacement buses.

Again, don't shy away because Dec. is cold. Just bring layers and a good coat. And good walking shoes/boots.
