Held in August year the Notting Hill Carnival is Europe's biggest street party.

The Notting Hill Carnival is the largest street festival in Europe and originated in 1964 as a way for Afro-Caribbean communities to celebrate their own cultures and traditions. The crowds are massive and whilst there is some trouble it is small in comparison to the numbers attending. I love the colour and music and joy that defines the celebration. Credit must go to the police who overall manage this event with a great deal of sensitivity
