Welcome to Chinatown, London! 🏯🇨🇳🇬🇧⛩🎏🎎
Since London’s original Chinese immigrants mostly settled in the East End, this present day Chinatown in Westminster is certainly a “newcomer” compared to its counterparts in many other global cities! This particular Chinatown area began to be developed in the 1970’s and has fought for its right to stick around in Central London over the past decades.
That being said, many strides have been made in recent years to solidify its longevity, and my photo today features the gorgeous Chinatown Gate erected in 2016, which was assembled in London by Chinese artisans! I absolutely love the celebration of culture it represents!
