Neighborhood Historic Walking Area
Chinatown offers plenty of tasty Chinese cuisine in the heart of London. The most difficult aspect of finding a restaurant here is choosing from the vast array of them. Peek into establishments to see the clientele; if they seem to be neighborhood residents, you'll likely find tasty food. Many restaurants present the bill in Chinese, so keep your own record of what you order and how much it costs. As you stroll the area, keep an eye out for details such as the stone lion on Gerrard Street. The neighborhood hosts various events and celebrations throughout the year, so check the schedule before you visit.
