Chinese New Year in London

Here's where to eat, drink and celebrate Chinese New Year in London

The Year of the Chicken is coming up and, as usual, celebrations for Chinese New Year in London will be loud and colourful – decorations, dragons and dancing will take over Chinatown for one of the best London events in February. The Chinese New Year begins on January 28 2017 with the main London parade taking place a couple of days later. Everyone’s welcome to join in the party, of course. But if you’re hoping to enjoy a meal in one of London's best Chinese restaurants, you’ll definitely need to book ahead - and if you're looking for places in and around Chinatown, check out our Soho area guide.

Check back nearer the time as we'll be updating this page as events are announced
