Notting Hill Carnival - Don't Miss the Biggest Street Party of the Year!

1

It's a massive event that takes place annually in Notting Hill with hundreds of thousands of people from all over the world forming one big, cheerful, dancing crowd.

The carnival has established itself as of one of the biggest, wildest, and most colourful open-air street parties around the world. For two days, countless live traditional steel drum bands, DJs and their massive sound systems, spectacular floats, and dancers parade through the streets. Hundreds of stalls with culinary specialties from the Caribbean are waiting for you to try – really yummy. The main parade is held on Bank Holiday Monday but basically the whole weekend is one hell of a big party!

Held annually, each August Bank Holiday:
Sunday – Kid’s day
Monday – Adult’s day
