Notting Hill Carnival 24-25 Aug 2014


What time is Carnival due to start?

The Carnival Bands will take to the roads from around 9am on Sunday 26th August and the same time on Monday 27th of August. Sunday is Children’s day and Monday is Adults day. The Carnival parade should complete its procession by 7pm.
It is advisable to use public transport to get to the Notting Hill Carnival in London, as most of the local roads will be for pedestrian use only. Also be aware that for safety reasons some stations may close temporarily if they become overcrowded. It may be worthwhile waiting until the station reopens rather than finding an alternative station.
