It’s nearly the bank holiday weekend! As the countries set for a bit of a celebration, there’s plenty going on over the weekend to keep yourself busy and entertained! I thought I’d map out some of the best things that are happening over in the capital city for you to enjoy with all the family.

Top things to do in London this weekend!

Notting Hill Carnival

Sunday is the kids day at Notting Hill carnival. It’s the parade and family day and it’s worth taking the children out to one of the more peaceful parts of the festival. If you come earlier in the day you’re granted to get into the carnival spirit before it gets too wild and many partying adults descend upon the party. Why not get dressed up in fancy dress and enjoy it with the little ones.

Some of my tips would be to arrive earlier and make sure you’re in a part of the carnival you can leave easily transport wise. Enjoy some great Caribbean food with your children and make sure to keep a good eye out on them. If you’re planning to stay longer and the weather is nice a good place to head is Meanwhile Gardens where you can get a blanket and sit in the grass with the children. It’s a small enclosed park area so it’s easier to keep an eye on the children.
