Between Lisle Street, Gerard Street, Shaftesbury Avenue and Leicester Square is China Town. This is the heart of the Chinese community in London. Here you will find all kinds of Chinese shops and restaurants. China Town really comes alive in February when the Chinese New Year starts.

You will find China Town between Lisle Street, Gerard Street, Shaftesbury Avenue and Leicester Square.

If the many Chinese restaurants don’t give you a clue where you are, then the telephone booths are designed like pagodas will.
