Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
It’s almost here, that last gasp of the season: the August bank holiday. And none of us are quite ready to sip the bittersweet dregs of the summer wine. On the bright side, it’s the most banging bank holiday in the calendar, thanks to the Notting Hill Carnival, our biggest outdoor party and – we don’t say this enough – the second biggest carnival in the world after Rio de Janeiro.
If you’re not up for playing mas on the Central line, there are bucketloads of offbeat ways to spend your three days of freedom. Just make those sweet 72 hours count with our alt August bank holiday guide.
