Chinese New Year in London

Chinese New Year is the Chinese festival that celebrates the beginning of a new year on the traditional Chinese calendar.

In 2020, Chinese New Year will be celebrated on the 25th of January and it will be the Year of the Rat.

Where is it possible to see the festival?

The central London festivities take place across the West End, from Shaftesbury Avenue in the North down to Trafalgar Square.

There are lively activities and foodie treats in ChinatownLeicester Square offers family-friendly entertainment; and while Trafalgar Square hosts the main stage performances, more stages can be found on Shaftesbury Avenue and Charing Cross Road.

London’s Lunar New Year festivities are the largest outside Asia.

What to say during the Chinese New Year?

Every year, hundreds of thousands of people descend on the West End to wish to each other “Xin Nian Kuai Le” (Happy New Year in Mandarin) or “San Nin Faai Lok” (in Cantonese).

How much does it cost to enjoy the Chinese New Year?

These activities are free (except food), therefore, you will be able to enjoy the festival without spending money!

 

Which Chinese restaurant do we suggest?

We recommend a restaurant called  A Wong.

This restaurant is located in Wilton Road, which is really near to the hotel. You will find traditional Chinese dishes.

We also suggest Dumplings’ Legend which is situated in Chinatown (Soho), this restaurant is well-known for his Cantonese food and for his chef who is Brendan Pang, Australian-Chinese Chef, and finalist of Master Chef Australia 2018.
