Hidden in the heart of the West End is the bustling gem that is Chinatown. It’s packed full of things to do with the family, whether you’re looking for authentic Chinese shopping markets filled with Chinese foods and goods, or you’re feeling peckish and want to dine in one of the many culture-packed Chinese restaurants in the area.
The most popular restaurants to visit are Baozi Inn, Cafe TPT, Four Seasons, Leong’s legends, Longji, Old Tree Daiwan Bee and HK Diner so be sure to check these out!
There are always interesting, fun events and activities happening. Be sure to head over to Chinatown for Chinese New Year, which takes place every year. They always have big festivities and incredible decorations to celebrate the New Year. The parade is an unmissable experience!
Whilst you’re in Chinatown, it’s just a stone’s throw away from Leicester Square and the West End so be sure to have a proper look around.
I love chinatown. Great for a day out in central. The food in amazing and I like to try a new place every time I go. They’ve also got great Chinese supermarkets where I get all sorts of new drinks.
Bonus that it’s right by Leicester Square and Covent Garden so I usually go shopping with friends or just hang out in Hyde Park afterwards.

Combining a trip to Chinatown with a visit to Trafalgar Square and The National Gallery is a no-brainer as they’re right next to each other. For a sweet treat, stop for a fish-shaped ice cream cone at Tsujiri or try a delicious bubble tea at May’s Sweet Bite
