Attend the Notting Hill Carnival

You might think this summer with all the energy expended on sport that London isn't used to holding big events, but as we all know we are a city which is home to some of the biggest and best in the world and the Notting Hill Carnival - held each year on August Bank Holiday Weekend, is one of your author's favourites.


One of the world's largest street parties, the carnival attracts up to a million people to the streets of West London for an event that surely must be the best such event in the UK, for a celebration to end the summer. Your author never gets tired of carnival, which fuses together a number of different cultures in an explosion of sound and colour. Though the families were out yesterday, today is the main day of Carnival, and then tomorrow we're all back to work, beginning the long slog towards Autumn.
