Brixton is a buzzy, lively place to visit. I live in near by Herne Hill and have always shopped in Brixton. The restaurants are so diverse and most serve great food! The reputation some people have of Brixton as a scary place is most undeserved....More

Travel on down the road to the Victoria line’s southern stop. The neighborhood is a Mecca for the art, music and restaurant scene. Tip: Stroll through the side streets and be surprised by what you discover.

It is enjoyable to visit local neighborhoods away from the more popular touristy areas. Brixton and the Brixton Market is an example. Few purses and leather goods here as found in other markets. The gem here is the people and the diverse ethnic mix bringing...More

Brixton is typically busy if you were to choose to visit for a few drinks in the evening. Its popularity has grown in recent years and more and more people seem to be ignoring some of the stigma commonly associated with the area. It’s very...More

This is a place that I especially recommend to visit in the evening for dinner. A great restaurant at low prices. This is a different London than the one you met from Oxford Street or Knighstbridge. In the past, Brixton was the home of newcomers...More
