Festive Season Transport in London

I am writing to advise about getting around London during the festive period. This post is longer as it provides information through to New Year’s Day.
Festive services:
The main changes to our services will be:

Christmas Eve, Tuesday 24 December ‑ A reduced weekday service will operate across the Tube network until 20:00. Last trains will be earlier than usual. Buses will run until just after midnight.

Christmas Day, Wednesday 25 December ‑ There will be no service on the entire network.

Boxing Day, Thursday 26 December ‑ A reduced service will operate on most of the network; there will be no service on London Overground.

New Year’s Eve, Tuesday 31 December ‑ Free travel will be provided on most of our services from 23:45 until 04:30. From around 17:00 central London roads will close to prepare for celebrations so buses will gradually be withdrawn.

New Year’s Day, Wednesday 1 January ‑ A reduced service will operate on most of the network.
