Notting Hill Carnival
Notting Hill Carnival is another popular event in London held annually on the last weekend in August. This huge celebration has become a defining part of the city’s cultural identity since its inception in 1966. Spanning over two days, it features colourful parades, sound systems playing reggae and calypso music from around the world, steel bands performing throughout the street, delicious Caribbean food stalls selling jerk chicken and rum punch, and much more. Hotels in Great Cumberland Place are a great option to stay near the Notting Hill carnival and they offer amazing spa breaks too that are great when you are exploring London.
