Notting Hill Carnival

The sights, sounds and smells of Notting Hill Carnival can be overwhelming. Navigate your way through this year's Carnival (Sunday August 30 - Monday August 31 2015) with our map of the main parade, bars, toilets and tube stops.

RECOMMENDED: Read the full Notting Hill Carnival guide

The parade begins at 10am on both Sunday and Monday, and judging finishes at 6.30pm; floats and parade bands have to clear the streets by 8.30pm. Soundsystems play on both Sunday and Monday, with a strict noise curfew at 7pm. The main parade starts on Great Western Road, winding its way along Chepstow Road, then on to Westbourne Grove, and then down Ladbroke Grove.

Mobile signal at Carnival is notoriously patchy, so download a version of this map to your phone.

Just to let you know, KCC & The Rocking Crew sound system, have pulled out of this years carnival. Due to many factors it is felt that we could not put on a show to the high standards that we have for the past 21 years we have been at carnival. Back for 2012!
