Last year nearly two million people attended the incredible Notting Hill Carnival, so it definitely deserves the title and reputation of Europe’s biggest street festival! An annual celebration with the Caribbean community at heart, it’s a huge street festival for everything Caribbean. This festival has been going since 1966 and it’s amassed itself to an existing two day event, with 36 static sound systems, soca floats, steel bands, and a whole lot of delicious food! Still, the sheer size of this event can be pretty daunting, so here’s some tips and advice for how to make the most of this bank holiday weekend!

Even though there are some great events and outside pre carnival fun we will be starting off with Sunday the 25th. The party starts at 10am with an opening ceremony then the parade starts at 10:30am.

Islington is and always has been a great place to venture whether it’s for a weekend of just a couple hours. There is so much variety of things to do that can keep you busy no matter the type of people you’re with! With bars, restaurants, vintage markets, theatres, cinemas, and even beautiful walks you’re covered even with the smallest of budgets!

London is the best known cities in the world, there’s enough touristy memorabilia to fill a museum ten times over, but with London being as big as it is, the touristy parts can become pretty repetitive. We can all goon the London Eye, down the Thames, get on a Double Decker red bus. There’s nothing wrong with that, and that’s part of the classic experience that comes with London. However, for those that like to really venture to weird and wacky parts of London, we have a great list to offer you,. We have some unconventional places that can show you just some of the weirdest and most fascinating that London has to offer!
