Distract yourself from the cold by visiting the Magic Lantern Festival at Chiswick House Gardens.
Celebrate the Chinese New Year 2016 – the year of the Monkey from Wednesday 3 February 2016 – Sunday 6 March 2016 from 5pm in the evenings.
This truly spectacular collection of beautiful rainbow coloured installations will impress and delight all ages. Our favourites were the flamingos (of course), super cute pandas, and impressive giant Chinese dragon. There is everything from the Chinese signs of the zodiac to giant squirrels, so there really is something for everyone.
The scale and intricacy of the lanterns is incredible and well worth the trip to the edge of London to witness such a stunning display – Not to be missed!
