Notting Hill Carnival, one of the best weekends of the year, is almost upon us. It's incredibly fun, but the sounds, smells, sights and crowds of Carnival can make it a little overwhelming. And with an estimated 2.5 million punters geared to head to west London over the weekend, it’s totally understandable that you might get turned around, lost or just be in need of a reminder of where you are after several cans of Red Stripe.

Never fear! We’ve created the interactive map below, soundsystems and all, to help you navigate your way around the famous west London parade. Check it out. 

What is the schedule for Notting Hill Carnival 2023?

Notting Hill Carnival 2023 starts on Sunday August 27 and continues on Bank Holiday Monday August 28

What is the Notting Hill Carnival 2023 parade route? 

Sunday is the day of the children’s parade and the adult’s parade takes place on Monday. Both begin near Westbourne Park tube station. The adult parade moves down to Westbourne Park Road, down Cheapstow Road to Westbourne Grove, turning up Ladbroke. It then loops down Kensal back to the starting point. The whole thing is three miles long in total.

All the participating soundsystems should have been announced by now. Find out where to find them over the weekend with our guide
