Many large cities in the UK today have their own Chinese Quarter and Liverpool is no exception. However, Liverpool is home to one of the largest and certainly the oldest Chinese Community in Europe.
Liverpool has a diverse cultural base and a trip round Chinatown soon illustrates the way in which this community has integrated within the city. A variety of excellent cuisine is on offer and the small shops are of interest to locals and tourists visiting this part of the city.
The Chinese New Year is Celebrated in style in the heart of Europe’s oldest Chinese community. This extravaganza features street entertainers, music and dance. The celebrations include a number of parades in which locals are dressed in Chinese mythical costumes of Lions and dragons. The street parades are well attended and the atmosphere is magnificent. Chinese houses and restaurants in the Chinese Quarter are cleaned and decorated with flowers for the occassion.
