Where to celebrate the Lunar New Year in London

Chinese New Year follows the moon's cycle, which means it falls every year on a different day. In 2024, it starts on 10 February and runs for 15 days, with the first day being the most important. It's the Year of the Wood Dragon, symbolising power, nobleness, honour, luck, and success. Chinese New Year in London is one of the biggest celebrations of its kind outside of Asia, so it's no surprise that there are many events across the city where you can celebrate in style. From workshops and lion dances to dim sum platters and Michelin-star set menus, here's our guide to celebrating the Lunar New Year in London. Gong Xi fa cai!

Expect exquisite takes on authentic Chinese dishes and expertly crafted cocktails, along with entertainment in the form of a Chinese calligrapher, a dragon dance, a wishing tree, and more.
