Take a unique trip to explore the history, the culture and the community in London’s Chinatown. As part of the Oral History Project, we have conducted over 100 interviews of the pioneers, elders and local owners that throughout their lives made a substantial contribution to the community to make Chinatown what it is today. This is a fantastic opportunity to learn about how Chinatown came to be in Leicester Square, and to hear the unique stories through the eyes of people that lived and worked in Chinatown for most of their lives.

Nice little neighborhood to visit if traveling to London. There's a variety of Chinese shops and restaurants to try especially if you are a foodie. There's was also live entertainment on the streets when we visited. Very lively at night.

wandering around the streets of Chinatown was interesting, especially as we went at Chinese new year, lanterns, a reall buzz. I don;t know about an attraction termed 'London Chinatown experience' if this exists.

We are strictly vegetarian so visit to China Town area in London was absolutely a waste. It has got countless restaurants serving East Asian cuisine. To reach the area, you can easily take the Piccadilly line and get down at Piccadilly or Leicester tube stations....More
