The Notting Hill Carnival is one of the most expected events of the London summer, which this year celebrated its 44 edition. Every year the streets of West London come to life during the last weekend of August to celebrate the largest festival in Europe, and the second bigger Carnival arround the world (after Brasil, of course). With its theme Afro-Caribbean and its explosion of color and joy is the perfect staging of the summer finale.
If Notting Hill itself is a must see in London, this is the best time to visit. An avalanche of contrasts, colors, flavors and music make an authentic Caribbean dream alive in the heart of London.
