Chinatown: Celebrate Chinese New Year in style at London's Chinatown

London is home to a Chinese population of 80,000 and Chinatown is a large part of the West End's social history. Tucked away in London's Soho, the streets along Shaftesbury Avenue are filled with Chinese restaurants, bars and shops. This is a popular area for Chinese cuisine, while the Chinese food stores sell authentic Oriental ingredients, so you can test out your own Chinese cooking yourself. February is when Chinatown really comes alive as millions of people celebrate Chinese New Year all over the world. Chinatown usually celebrates its New Year celebrations the following Sunday, with large open-air events along the streets and in nearby Trafalgar Square and Leicester Square. Past years have seen world-class dance, music, dragon dances and acrobatics at the free events and the streets are decorated with Chinese lanterns. And to top off the night, Leicester Square hosts a fantastic fireworks display.
