The Chinese New Year marks the first day of the lunar calendar.

The Chinese community marks the start of the New Year in a great colorful, noisy parade which marches through the city's main roads.
 
The impressive parade with big dancing lions' dolls intends, according to the tradition, to bring good luck to the houses and shops on its course. The parade is a unique tourists' attraction.
 
Due to the numerous visitors during the festival day and the high demand for accommodations it is recommended to check hotel rates and book rooms well in advance.
 
Dancing shows, traditional music and Chinese operas are displayed on the stages in Trafalgar Square and Leicester Square.

United Kingdom background and overview:
Great Britain, the dominant industrial and maritime power of the 19th century, played a leading role in developing parliamentary democracy and in advancing literature and science. At its zenith, the British Empire stretched over one-fourth of the earth's surface.
The first half of the 20th century saw the UK's strength seriously depleted in two World Wars. The second half witnessed the dismantling of the Empire and the UK rebuilding itself into a modern and prosperous European nation. As one of five permanent members of the UN Security Council, a founding member of NATO, and of the Commonwealth, the UK pursues a global approach to foreign policy; it currently is weighing the degree of its integration with continental Europe.
A member of the EU, it chose to remain outside the Economic and Monetary Union for the time being. Constitutional reform is also a significant issue in the UK. The Scottish Parliament, the National Assembly for Wales, and the Northern Ireland Assembly were established in 1999, but the latter is suspended due to wrangling over the peace process.
