A much needed three-day weekend is on the horizon, so have you sorted your plans yet? We're here to nudge you in the right direction with this choice of fantastic bank holiday events and parties! We've been out searching the city for the very best happenings; from late night drinking and dancing to chilled one-off events, we've got everything covered. So sit back, relax and have a browse of the best Bank Holiday Weekend Events in London.
The August Bank Holiday weekend wouldn't be complete without one of the world's best street festivals. The Notting Hill Carnival hits London's streets this weekend amid a plume of feathers, colours and noise. If you're at the carnival itself, make sure you hit some of the Sound System stages - but if you're planning on celebrating elsewhere, there are a whole host of bars, pubs, clubs and events to keep you and your friends buzzing all weekend!
If the August Bank Holiday is a hot one, then why not cool off in a club with a pool in it. Carwash in Shoreditch takes place on a Saturday evening from 10pm. Join the party in this cool East end club, moving to rocking DJ beats like no one is watching. Drinks flow as the party bounces until the early hours. If that's not enough then the Jacuzzi and pool are sure to be.
Looking for a chic spot to while away the August bank holiday in London? Look no further than the cocktail-heavy Light Lounge in Soho, fronting delicious drinks, party tunes and a late licence over the weekend. With no work on Monday there's really no excuse not to let loose (in style, of course).
