Chinese New Year activities in London

Over 700,000 people will flock to celebrate Chinese New Year in London, making their festivities the largest outside of Asia.

Celebrations will take place on Sunday 29th January between 10am and 6pm in Trafalgar Square, Chinatown and across the West End.

Kicking off with a colourful parade that snakes from Charing Cross Road to Shaftesbury Avenue, the lively display will include dragon dancers, vibrant, hand-crafted floats and martial arts – all led by a flying Chinese lion.

The London Eye will also join the citywide celebrations with a specially designed red and gold lightshow every hour from 4pm over the weekend, as well as “surprise and delight moments” for maximum excitement.
