London Chinatown

 
Address
27 Gerrard St
Westminster
London, W1D 5QJ
 
 
 
 

Established around Gerrard Street in Soho during the 1970s, London's Chinatown bursts with colour and diversity. Many traditional restaurants dot the area, including the Feng Shui Inn at the eastern entrance of Chinatown, as well as numerous souvenir shops - if you wanted to get hold of a Lucky Cat, this is the place to come.

Gerrard Street is the principal London location used onscreen in Sherlock, specifically the eastern end. Other Chinatown parts of the episode, including the Lucky Cat Emporium, were actually shot in Newport in Wales.

Chinatown is easily accessible from Leicester Square Underground station [Northern, Piccadilly].

From any of the station exits, head north up Charing Cross Road, until you see Newport Court on your left - hand side. Head down and turn right at the end up Newport Place, past the traditional Chinese Pagoda. Gerrard Street and the gated entrance to Chinatown proper will be on your left.
