London Chinese New Year Celebrations

11 February 2024
London Chinatown, Trafalgar Square and the West End

Celebrate the Year of the Dragon at the biggest Chinese New Year celebrations outside of Asia. The London Chinese New Year Celebrations is vibrant and fun, with lots of family-friendly events, including the famous Chinese New Year Parade and the colourful lion and dragon dances. There’s also fantastic street food to be had, or head across to Trafalgar Square for a line-up of special performances and fireworks. Red is the colour of Chinese New Year, so make sure you wear something red to bring good luck for the coming year. And whilst you’re there, explore the area: London’s Chinatown is a fascinating place to visit, so look out for street signs written in Chinese, paper lanterns, and Chinese novelties, plus some of the best dim sum in London.
