If the threat of a washout, crowds of hundreds of thousands and the seeming inability to find a toilet put you off Notting Hill carnival this year, you can still get in on some of the action.

Local television channel London Live will let you catch a glimpse of the streams of colorful floats, huge processions of dancers in flamboyant costumes and the Calypso music.

Viewers will be able to watch the capital's biggest street party from the comfort of their own sofa between 4-6pm today, as well as tomorrow.

"[Tomorrow's finale] will be broadcast from the heart of the parade ... bringing you all the colour, music, costumes and atmosphere," London Live said.
