Frankfurt to London, by train or bus?

I was trying to catch a flight from Frankfurt to London on Dec 25th 2009 on Ryanair or other discount european airlines but unfortunately it looks like there are no flights running on christmas. It looks like my only option is train from London to Frankfurt. Do you know any cheap options for 3 people to travel to London on that day. Thanks

You can fly Air Berlin out of Duesseldorf on that date for 99 Euros each total at 14:55 with their "saver" fare.

There are flights from either Stuttgart or Bonn-Cologne on GermanWings ( www.germanwings.com ), and using also their train fare offer for 25€ per person you can inexpensively get to the airport you depart from. The Bonn-Cologne flight is much cheaper as it appears all of the less expensive tickets from Stuttgart have already been sold.

Like GermanWings also Air Berlin is offering Rail&Fly tickets for EUR 25,00.
