Removals in West London may experience delays this weekend with the Notting Hill Carnival expecting a quarter of a million people to be on the streets of this part of Kensington and Chelsea. Big Removals, London’s leading home removal, office removal and international removals service, would advise those considering moving to or from West London to allow for significantly more transfer time. Real estate removals services as far west as Oxford may also be affected with the A40 Marylebone flyover closed for the bank holiday.
The Notting Hill Carnival is the largest street festival in Europe and originated in 1964 as a way for Afro-Caribbean communities to celebrate their own cultures and traditions. Taking place every August Bank Holiday weekend in the streets of London W11, the Notting Hill Carnival is an amazing array of sounds, colourful sights and social solidarity.
Delays can also be expected around Clapham Common with the SW4 festival taking place over the bank holiday weekend. Removals services may find congestion in near-by Battersea, Balham and Wandsworth with 20,000 reveller expected to attend this dance music festival, promoted as the London alternative to the summer in Ibiza. Originally purely a trance and hard house affair, South West Four (SW4), in association with Time Out, now also embraces minimal techno and maximal electro as well as deep and twisted house.
The Reading and Leeds festival may also cause removals services to be delayed this weekend. Less prevalent in Leeds, with the festival location on the outskirts of the city, Reading city centre may be more greatly affected with large numbers of non-residents arriving by car and rail and the commercial activity these visitors will create.
