Go to Notting Hill Carnival

One of the biggest and brightest street parties on the planet!

London's Caribbean soul!

Every August bank holiday weekend, millions of revellers take to the streets of West London for two epic days of music, parades, food and dancing!

A celebration of London’s large Caribbean diaspora, Notting Hill Carnival began in the mid-1960s, and has grown dramatically over the years, today attended by some two million people from across the city and beyond! It centres around a giant parade that features floats, dance troupes, steel drummers and much more, though for many revellers the main draw is the hundreds of giant sound systems which pump out the bass-heavy music of Jamaica and its neighbouring islands.
