Notting Hill Carnival

10:00am – 7:00pm
Free

We are still waiting for an official announcement about plans for 2022, but August bank holiday weekend is time for Notting Hill Carnival, Europe’s biggest street party. It’s a colourful, vibrant celebration of all things multicultural, and especially London’s African-Caribbean communities. Revellers come from all over for the elaborate costumes, community spirit and cultural heritage. And of course, the carnival wouldn’t be complete without Caribbean drinks and eats as well as beats.

We have a handy guide with all you need to know about Notting Hill Carnival.
