Notting Hill Carnival
Heading for Rio to experience all the colour and festivities of Carnival? Why not consider London instead? That's right - London has one of the best Caribbean-style Carnivals on the planet. Held every August Bank Holiday, the Notting Hill Carnival is the largest street carnival in Europe and includes colourful costumes, hundreds of Caribbean food stalls and over one million revellers!
The carnival has its roots in the Caribbean carnivals of the early 19th century which were created to celebrate the abolition of slavery. Dressing up in costumes mimicking the European fashions of their former masters, the freed slaves celebrated their new freedom in a tradition that continues today.
