Notting Hill Carnival route map

The parade route, soundsystems and toilets – here are your main stopping points at the 2017 Carnival. Print our main map or use our interactive map on the day

The sights, sounds and smells of Notting Hill Carnival can be overwhelming. But we're here to help you navigate your way through this year's Carnival with our map of the main parade, soundsystems, tube stops – and most importantly, toilets!

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.

Great photo - never seen that many white people round here. These people will go anywhere to get drunk & make a frickin nuisance of themselves.

Is there anyone out there that can tell me the name of the road on route that the Trinidad and Tobago posse gather... I believe they call it Trini Hill??

@Leanne H it's near Westbourne Park and Royal Oak stations, after judging point. Look at the map and it's near the sharp corner end of Westbourne Park Road by St Stephens gardens

Rocking Crew

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!
