Whether you have a deep seated interest in the orient, or you have a day or a weekend planned out in London and you are willing to try a few new things, Chinatown in London is a fantastic place to go to get a taste of the orient without having to sit on a plane for ten hours.
With a huge collection of shops, clubs, pubs, restaurants and supermarkets, Chinatown encompasses many cultures to bring you a whirlwind ride into the tastes and styles of how other countries live, work and play.
Located in Gerrard Street, off Shaftesbury Avenue and near the area of Soho in London, Chinatown boasts just fewer than 80 restaurants that reflect on innovative and authentic Asian cuisine. Plus should you happen to visit Chinatown at the end of January to the beginning of February, you can catch the fantastic New Year’s celebrations with colourful dragons and beautiful Chinese lanterns decorating the alleyways!
Simply taking a walk down the roads of Chinatown is enough to amaze, with a number of personal shops and stalls set up selling everything from live fish to authentic clothing, there will be something for everyone at Chinatown! Chinatown is located between Leicester Square and Piccadilly Circus tube stations, although why not hire a minibus to take you directly to Chinatown with Coach Transport Group?
