I am travelling from Amsterdam but willing to come from Antwerp or Brussels and need to get to London on Christmas day and the flights are either too expensive or not running. Does anyone know of any alternatives or anyway for me to get to London from any of those cities on Christmas?

Quoting Gilesdavies (Reply 6): I think you can get some very cheap fares as a foot passenger
I think you will be very lucky to find anything except very expensive fares over the Christmas period particularly on Christmas Day. There is an imbalance between the number of potential travellers - much larger than normal - and the number of transportation employees prepared to work - much smaller than normal. So the laws of supply and demand decree . . .

If you can't justify the cost of a KLM flight on christmas day, your best bet is to get a late Easyjet flight on 24th, which seems to be EUR 60. But then you'll need to find somewhere to stay, the Yotel at LGW should be about £60.
You'll have to get a coach into London on 25th, as the trains won't be running. The trains also stop early on the 24th. Check www.nationalrail.co.uk for details.

You will find all transport in UK at a standstill on Christmas Day . In fact there are No buses or Tubes in London at all.There are a few airport to city centre services but otherwise it is a taxi and this will cost you more than the flight
