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.

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