Named after the London County Councillor Emslie John Horniman who created it, and opened in 1914, Emslie Horniman’s Pleasance is located on Bosworth Road in Kensal Green on the southern side of the Grand Union Canal, near to Notting Hill. The nearest tube station is Westbourne Park.
The Pleasance is the traditional starting point for Notting Hill Carnival where on the Saturday night before Carnival, the best steel bands compete in Panorama. This is where some of the very best pan music can be heard all weekend.
Information on scheduled and special events to be held at Emslie Horniman’s Pleasance will be announced on Twitter @W11Carnival, on Facebook and full details will be found here. Bookmark this page and check back often for updates.
