Notting Hill CarnivalLet yourself fly on the Caribbean wind that blows through London at Notting Hill Carnival time.
Can we possibly hear the name Notting Hill without being on the edge of our seats with excitement? Of course not! First organised in 1966, Europe’s biggest street festival, the Notting Hill Carnival, brings the energetic atmosphere of the Caribbean Islands to West London. Not stopping at music and dance displays, Notting Hill Carnival also turns your stomach into a festive arena with the delicious tastes of Caribbean Cuisine, and we should tell you now that the event attracts over one million visitors. Notting Hill Carnival, which started as an event showing defiance against racism, is a colourful introduction to Caribbean culture and you can be sure that your time spent there will be a good substitute for the carnival in Rio. The festival is eagerly anticipated by entertainment enthusiasts and culture vultures from across the world so it’s advisable to start making all your plans now. If you feel you’re ready for two days packed with music and dance, West London’s district of Notting Hill, which has even been made into a film set, is ready and waiting for you.
