Notting Hill Carnival 2018 took place on Sunday 26 and Monday 27 August.
As the biggest event of its kind in Europe, we know carnival has a major impact on those who live and work along the carnival route. The 2018 carnival was being organised by Notting Hill Carnival Limited. Westminster City Council is working worked closely with the organisers, the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, partner agencies, the Metropolitan Police Service and other emergency services to minimise the impact of the event on residents and the local area.
The council does this by providing public toilets, managing street trading sites, enforcing unlicensed activity, removing rubbish from the carnival route each night and offering a free garden and basement cleaning service after the event to residents within the carnival footprint.
The following Westminster roads will be closed for the carnival between midnight Sunday 26 August and 4am Tuesday 28 August 2018:
