Celebrate the Lunar New Year in Paddington

The Lunar New Year falls on Sunday 22 January this year, ending the Chinese Year of the Tiger and beginning the Year of the Rabbit.

Celebrated all around the world, by over a billion people in China and East and South East Asia, the festive season is only just beginning.

Brush off the January blues, gather your friends and family and head over to Paddington for a taste of Asia.

London hosts the largest celebration of Chinese New Year outside of Asia, easily accessed from Paddington on the Elizabeth line to Tottenham Court Road, enjoy the Chinese New Year Parade and Dragon dance in Trafalgar Square but avoid the crowds in China Town and head to Paddington for some delicious food.
