erica, There are some restaurants open on Boxing Day but I don't know which ones will be in the areas you mentioned. Most likely candidates are pubs and ethnic cuisines.

Check out www.toptable.co.uk which has a special section devoted to places open on Christmas/Boxing Day

There is also limited tube/bus service on Boxing Day so you won't necessarily have to rely on your feet for transport. Taxi's too tho I assume they'll be charching higher than normal fares.

Holy Moses! Look at those prices. We're eating out on the 25th here at home and I thought we were being charged a lot. Unless you want that meal to be the highlight of your trip, I'd look for some ethnic restaurants. Anything non-Christian. In the U.S., sometimes the delis or the Chinese tak-outs stay open.

Good Luck.
