The Return of the Notting Hill Carnival!
Friday 25th February 2022 1:07 pm posted in What's On
After 2 years of delay, we can’t wait to finally join London’s biggest street party on August 28th as the Notting Hill Carnival fills the streets of west London with Caribbean colours, music and flavours.
Watch elaborate floats and colourful costumed performers wind their way through the streets in the carnival parade, dance to the sound of steel bands and calypso music, and visit the tempting food stalls along the route.
The Notting Hill Carnival was first held in 1966 as an offshoot of the Trinidad Carnival, celebrating Caribbean culture and traditions in London. The carnival has since become the largest street festival in Europe and you can expect to see some 50,000 performers in the parade and more than 30 sound systems, with more than one million people attending over the carnival weekend.
If you’re planning to go to the carnival, find where to stay near the celebrations, check out Caribbean restaurants to refuel at afterwards and download the Visit London app for more information on Notting Hill Carnival.
Get ahead of the party and book your accommodation with us now! We are less than 18 minutes from Notting Hill, giving you enough time to get party-ready and not be late!
