Notting Hill...home of Caribbean 'crunk'

End of August Bank holiday I headed to 'The Big Smoke' for the weekend. Swapping local beer festivals for Caribbean cuisine and street-side
Costumes= extraordinary
Atmosphere= AMAZING!!
The Notting Hill carnival is the largest festival celebration of it's kind in Europe. 20 miles of West London streets came alive with the most vibrant smells and sounds that i have ever encountered in the UK. With over 1 million carnival revellers the atmosphere blew me away.

Rooftop parties on every corner
and Caribbean street music and pavement disco-techs filled the overflowing streets.

Favourite spot of the day...khaki satchel worn by a carnival reveller on the tube
