Out & About: Notting Hill Carnival

What is typically associated with London? Grey. What is typically associated with bank holidays? Grey.  Yet put the two together and you have the explosion of colour that is Notting Hill Carnival... today was my first experience of Carnival - a big tick against my London bucket list! It's safe to say nothing can prepare you for how lively it really is. A total multi-sensory phenomenon: the cheerful colours of the costumes; the booming sounds, the smells of barbecued jerk chicken and the sheer volume of people that pretty much push you into a dance!
