Celebrating Free Events For All

The sights, the sounds and the smells of Notting Hill Carnival can be overwhelming. What's more, with an estimated two million people making their way to W10 over the bank holiday weekend and after a couple of cans of Red Stripe, it's totally understandable that you might get turned around, lost or just be in need of a reminder of where you are.

That's where we come in: we're here to help you navigate your way through this year's Carnival with our map of the parade, soundsystems, tube stops – and most importantly, toilets! Click on the map to make it bigger.
