Of course we couldn't talk about August events without mentioning the legendary Notting Hill Carnival. From earth-moving music (quite literally!), to those colourful costumes and sumptuous street food from around the globe, the carnival is a treat for every one of the senses. The carnival falls on the 24th and 25th this year and, with the weather set to be scorching this month, it should be a good 'un!
Notting Hill is a district in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea in central London. It is a cosmopolitan district known as the location for the annual Notting Hill Carnival, and for being home to the Portobello Road Market.
