Bank Holiday Weekend at the end of August; the streets in West London come alive!
Imagine a street festival packed with Caribbean flavour and colour that lasts for two days! Europe’s largest street party that has a parade route that starts from Harrow road to Westbourne park to Notting Hill gate to Ladbroke Grove.
The choice of how you experience Notting Hill Carnival is completely up to you – you could take part in the dancing to the music or indulging in the Caribbean food or bring a picnic and munch whilst watching the floats go by. This carnival normally pulls in crowds of 2 million people from around Europe and is always a vibe.
