The mayor of Dubrovnik, Croatia is limiting how many people can visit this Game of Thrones location.
SFTW 25-28 AugIt's bank HOLLER day! Here's where to party accordinglyTHE BIG ONE: Notting Hill CarnivalWe'll begin with the biggie: an event that really needs no introduction. What's that? You'd like one anyway? OK, how about: sound systems, dance troupes, rice n' peas, trumpeters, masquerade, street food, steel drums, feathers galore, DJs, curried goat, Red Stripe, samba dancing with strangers and one great. Big. Almighty. STREET PARADE? But really we could have done it in one word: CARNIVAL.Extra exciting this year is that the legendary RBMA (that's Red Bull Music Academy)  soundsystem is open to all for the first time. Check out dancehall star Spice, rapper Stefflon Don and Mixpak boss Dre Skull at Emslie Horniman's Pleasance Park.26-28 August; free
London W11
thenottinghillcarnival.comTHE BEATS AND BOWLING ONE: Island Records x Queens Skate Dine BowlWe love Carnival, really we do. But you know what it's missing? Ten-pin bowling and ice skating, obviously. Happily, here to rectify the situation is Queens Skate, Dine Bowl, who are holding a mighty two-day party, with Carnival vibes right up our (bowling) alley. Hosting a Mas-themed DJ takeover from super-cool label Island Records in the middle of the even-cooler (literally) ice rink, expect back-to-back sets from a specially built beach-shack booth. Your ticket price gets you unlimited skating, a game of bowling, an Island Records Beer and a MEATLiquor Burger: or, in short, F-U-N.27-28 Aug; £18.50

queens.londonTHE FESTIVAL: South West FourWe hereby posit the theory that, in a weekend when there there's no work to think about on Monday, you may feel the need to dance in a field. And dance hard. Well good news! Clapham's humdinger of an electro-fest is back to fill the Common with rumbling beats once more. Sunday tickets are still available, meaning you can strap in for sets from Deadmau5, Knife Party, Sub Focus, Martin Solveig and Example. We suggest you get involved.26-27 Aug; £62.50

Southwestfour.comTHE MULITASKER: Number 90's Bank Holiday WeekenderHow to celebrate a bank holiday, by hip canalside Hackney venue Number 90. 1. Don't settle for just a party: have a Weekender, cramming in Rough Trade DJ sets, art installations, live painting, 'unicorn-disguised entertainers' AND a disco-house party where you can take home the DJ's vinyl as they're played. 2. Add liberal amounts of specialist cocktails and fizz (did someone say 'bottomless brunch'? We think they did), as well as gourmet burgers and Sunday roasts. 3. Have a piñata. Because you've got to have a piñata. And 4. Invite EVERYONE.25-28 Aug; free

Here's a chance to get a taste of its festie cool, along with a taste, more literally, of Dinerama's foodie cool, at this special bank holiday party. You're in for a full 12 hours of beats, eats and booze, with DJ sets from Simian Mobile Disco, Baio, Throwing Shade and Eclair Fifi, and food from all of Dinerama's star stalls - don't miss Thunderbird's fiery chippuffalo wings with a side of Laffa's crispy halloumi fries. Sink a tequila colada slushy (or two. Or five. It's bank holiday Sunday), then hit the floor to dance off your dinner. Win.27 Aug; £10 including a beer on entry

streetfeast.com/visit-us/dinerama/THE ALL-DAYER: Secretsundaze Day & Night PartyOK, so Secretsundaze is neither secret nor on a Sunday. But set aside any worries about false advertising, folks, because this is set to be a party of the highest order. We're talking 18 hours (yes, EIGHTEEN hours) of grade-A, top class beats, courtesy of the SS team James Priestley and Giles Smith, along with support sets from Marcellus Pittman, Sadar Bahar and Bradley Zero. Bring comfy shoes and shape-throwing stamina - this one goes from 2pm-8am.26 Aug; from £14.50

In answer to our collective post-party dreams, a burger pizza has come into existence. That's right, we said BURGER PIZZA. In their infinite wisdom, the kings of the London's gourmet-burger scene, Patty & Bun, have done an ingredients swap with pizza supremos Yard Sale - and the results? A Holy Pepperoni burger, plus a pizza version of the P&B classic Smoky Robinson, both available at all Patty & Bun and Yard Sale venues. We'll have one of each, ta - bank holiday hangover, sorted.Until 19 Sept
