17 Photos of Chinatown London And Lunar New Year Lanterns

This was my first time away from home during Chinese New Year. My brother told me about the huge celebrations in London (the largest celebrations outside of Asia) so here is my experience and some photos of the beautiful Chinatown lanterns.

My experience wasn’t great. As with any large celebration or event in London, it’s overcrowded (as you’ll see in some of the photos below). Just getting from one side of Trafalgar Square, where the main celebrations were happening, was a pain.

Tightly packed like sardines, it made the day rather frustrating. Chinatown wasn’t much better either and unless you were near the front, you couldn’t see anything for the huge crowds which amassed.

I did see a little of a dragon dance though. My favourite part of the whole day (actually my only highlight of the day) was photographing the beautiful lanterns in Chinatown. Here are some of my favourites.
