The Year of the Dog is here in 2018 and, as usual, Chinese New Year in London will be one of the most exciting events in February, full of colour, noise and a whole lot of dragons. Chinatown will be bulging with decorations and dancers to mark the start of the Chinese New Year (which begins on Friday February 16 2018).
Here's our round-up of parties and places to welcome in the Chinese New Year, plus tips on watching the parade too. For more insider advice, be sure to read-up on the best of Chinese London as well.
Remember, if you’re hoping for a meal at one of the best restaurants in Chinatown during the New Year celebrations, you'll need to book ahead, as the area gets incredibly busy.
