Notting Hill, Westbourne Park Sunday August 30 2015 - Monday August 31 2015 Free

Since Notting Hill Carnival debuted in 1964, the event has undoubtedly grown and morphed, attracting ever more revellers with its spectacle of floats featuring calypso, mas and pan bands as well as a series of soundsystems for alfresco dancing. You can be sure of dense crowds and a vibrant celebration of music, movement and masquerade together with Caribbean food stalls serving up jerk chicken and fried plantain. The more family-friendly Sunday is the best day to take children to the Carnival, with the main parade on Monday normally winding a path from Great Western Road, along Chepstow Road and Westbourne Grove to Ladbroke Grove. It's worth noting that Ladbroke Grove station is usually closed on both days, with other stations in the area permitting exit only – check www.tfl.gov.uk/journeyplanner nearer the time.

A traditional and ever more popular Afro-Caribbean treat. For two days a year the Notting Hill streets are transformed into a labyrinth to explore, celebrating diversity in culture, music and the arts. For those who haven't been - its a must.
