Explore London – Chiswick House Magical Lantern Festival

Following the incredible Lumiere light installations in January, London has been lit up again, this time by the Magical Lantern festival. The festival is a Chinese tradition to celebrate the lunar new year and features amazingly complex lanterns, ranging from kitsch figures to a 66 metre long dragon, beautiful flowers to terracotta warriors – and as an English twist, even a telephone box! Chiswick House, a stunning neo-Palladian villa set in gorgeous restored 18th century gardens, is hosting the festival every evening until 6th March so there’s still time to visit!
