How to Spend A Day with the Family in Chinatown

If you’re looking for somewhere to spend a day with the family, then look no further. Nestled in the heart of the West End, Chinatown is the perfect location for a family day out. Whether you have little ones to keep busy or older kids to entertain, Chinatown has something for everyone, jam-packed with a number of leisurely activities and venues which are fun for all the fam!

Grab a snack from Chinatown Bakery

Upon arrival into Chinatown, prepare your troops for the day ahead with a tasty snack from Chinatown Bakery. Here you’ll find a whole assortment of sweet and savoury baked goods such as Spring Onion Chicken Floss Rolls, Benito Teriyaki Buns and Custard Buns. A must try is their infamous Taiyaki fish – soft fish-shaped waffles filled with gooey custard paste. Grab your treats and take a seat in the new colourful outdoor seating area in Newport Court.

Look around Oseyo

Chinatown is home to a number of fantastic supermarkets filled with bright and brilliant products which export you to the shopping aisles of East Asia. Mooch around Oseyo, where you’ll find a little slice of Korea in the heart of London.  K-pop, stationery, accessories and K-beauty favourites can be explored by the kids, whilst you fill your basket with Korean culinary favourites and quirky snacks to stock the cupboards.

Visit House of Spells

The fun doesn’t end yet as its time to step into a magic world of wizards, fantastical beasts and superheroes at House of Spells. Explore the mirrors and mysterious other worldly surroundings as you find merchandise from your favourite fantasy chronicles such as Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones.
