Spread throughout West London, the celebration takes place in Notting Hill, Ladbroke Grove and Westbourne Park. The main parade starts on Great Western Road, all the way down to Chepstow Road and then to Westbourne Grove and then down to Ladbroke Grove.

Our best advice if you're going to Notting Hill with your family would be to go on 'Family Day' which has always been traditionally on Monday and is much more quiet. Arrive early to beat the crowds and bring snacks! We would suggest going to Marks and Spencer up to + 1.50% CashCoins or Asda + 2.75 CashCoins, to make sure you're prepared with plentiful snacks at hand!
If you're not able to head down to Notting Hill Carnival then why not bring the party to your home! Whether hosting a dinner themed party with Caribbean flavours or just having an excuse to throw your own mini carnival (although we can't be responsible for the mess or hangovers the next day!) Join the fun and create your own tradition! We would suggest getting decorations from Party Pieces + 2.50 %CashCoins. Head over to Waitrose + 2.50% CashCoins to stock up on all the food and alcohol!
