Chinatown is London multiculturalism at its best

Occupying the area in and around Gerrard Street, close to Leicester Square, is a beacon of London's multicultural offering - Chinatown. With its vibrant main strip and side streets, decked with colourful lanterns and traditional Chinese decor, you'll be swept away to the far east, while just a few steps from London's theatre district.

Track down the famous stone dragons and take a selfie beneath the iconic Chinese gates.

A culinary tour of China - in London.

Hone in on the regional delicacies of China, from Hunanese dishes at Ba Shan and Cantonese classics of Hung's, to Sichuan-style broth at Baozi Inn and Hong Kong classics at Old Town 97.

Fancy something sweet? head to the Candy Cafe - a tiny nook of a doorway tucked away on Macclesfield Street that specialises in Chinese desserts and bubble tea.

A neon wonderland

If you're a fan of the capital's bright lights, they get no brighter than those at God's Own Junkyard in Soho. Artworks in neon and light adorn the walls and ceilings, priding itself as the oldest signmakers in London.
