Of course the classic place to catch the best of Chinese New Year is Chinatown but if you fancy something a little out of the ordinary then we love Chiswick House, where they’ve been holding a lantern festival for the last few years. You take a wandering stroll through illuminated lantern scenes, this year all based on a Silk Road theme, and finish up at a collection of stalls, food places and skating. For 2017 they seem to have really pulled all the stops out with over fifty different illuminations, a pop-up ice bar, some great world street food and, in celebration of this year’s zodiac animal, a giant fire rooster.
