With Britain's biggest street festival about to hit London this weekend, we're getting in the carnival spirit at Londonist HQ. Notting Hill is all about extravagant costumes, community spirit and the aroma of Caribbean food yet some of the best shots come from policemen letting their helmet hair down and getting in on the party.

If you are heading to carnival this weekend find out where you can get the tastiest food and drink from our handy guide.

Thanks to the following photographers for use of their photos via the Londonist Flickr pool: Rod, Dee McIntosh, Ellen Munro, Pierre Mallien, cakehole, El Freddy, Jess, Kayode Okeyode
