London set to celebrate the Chinese New Year. This will be the year of the Wooden Horse. We’ve selected some of London’s most significant horses by way of tribute.
This year’s public celebrations take place on Sunday 2 February. A big parade will start at Trafalgar Square at 10am, heading towards Shaftesbury Avenue and Chinatown. Colourful performances, dances and music are expected.
In the meantime, you could prepare by trying one of these alternative chinese restaurants in Chinatown.
