    Top 5 safety tips: Visiting the Notting Hill Carnival


    Notting Hill carnival takes place each August and is dubbed as the ‘Biggest Street Festival in Europe`. Following its massive 50th year in summer 2014, there is no doubt that the event will be back with a bang for the commencement of the second half of its 100-year stint next summer.

    Accidents at Notting Hill Carnival

    Although accidents in public do occur at Notting Hill Carnival, such as slips, trips and falls and other public accidents, the event is viewed as suitable for all ages. Go as a couple, with friends, with your family, with your children, the Notting Hill Carnival is an all-round people pleaser and really stands out from the crowd.

    The carnival is also free for all the family, so if you do decide to go with children, avoid any accidents in the hustle and bustle, and visit on ‘children’s day’. Enjoy the calmer ambience with the colourful costumes and a shorter parade to accommodate tiny legs. It is worth noting that first-aid facilities and policing is predominant at the carnival, in the case of a public accident or injury.

    Here are five top safety tips to take on board when visiting the Notting Hill Carnival:

    1. Be sure to plan your route to the festival using a travel app, as roads and tubes will be temporarily closed. Find the nearest open tube and make your way on foot
    2. Have a mobile phone with you in case you get lost or there is a public accident. Wet wipes, toilet tissue and a bottle of water are all essentials. Make a little pack up before you leave.
    3. Take the children on ‘children’s day’ to avoid any public accidents due to the hustle and bustle of the busier days. This is usually on a Sunday.
    4. Keep your valuables out of sight. Pickpockets do operate at Notting Hill Carnival. While you will want to take photographs, be sure to keep your camera and/or your smartphone in your hand, and put it away safely and securely when it is not in use.
    5. Forget the stilettos; this isn’t that kind of party! Wear sensible footwear, suitable for dancing and walking, and to minimise the risk of slips, trips and falls.
