Notting Hill Carnival

Overground train guards will be on strike this weekend - any excuse to hold passengers to ransom - and there will also be station closures and bus diversions due to the Notting Hill Carnival. So check the Transport for London website before you make a move: CLICK. You'll find the route for the carnival on the carnival website: CLICK. The adult day is Monday, the kiddie day Sunday. Police have already arrested 200 potential trouble makers, but warn that pickpockets and mobile phone snatchers will be out in force. St Katharine Docks, near Tower Bridge, is the place to visit if you're interested in the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race. You can view the yachts and go aboard (CLICK).

"The adult day is Sunday, the kiddie day Monday."

Typo? The carnival link says Sunday is Children's Day.

How to reach Notting Hill from Birmingham?

Thanks for your comment. Yes, I got the days back to front, because I put the adult day first and the kiddie day second. It was quickly pointed out via Google+ and I changed it.

Hi, Laura

I don't how long the overground rail strike is due to last, but my post links to TfL for latest updates. There's a TfL pdf file with all the details. Check it out today and keep your fingers crossed for Monday. I guess Birmingham travel news will also have updates on the rail strike. Good luck.
