You just have to go here. There are so many interesting things you can see. But the place is very crowded at the weekends so make sure you have enough time.

I lived here for many years, I never had to pay the rent, and that was the only reason. Brixton is undergoing a gentrification process, is close to the center and greedy landlord need to charge more, so trying to attract business and middle classes, pushing out the old dirty dodgy shops.

Brixton, London is a wonderfulmfusion of cultures with a great vibe. Jamaican music fills the air, colourful african stalls, David Bowie's memorial mural and its surrounding outpouring of love, quirky shops, amazing eateries, bustling but quaint Ritzy theatre, it has the lot and I love to visit.

I go out in Brixton all the time with friends and it is a changing [sometimes a bit too fast] area - but one that still is worth a visit - and all of the oldest best music and club pub attractions [Academy, Prince Albert, Satay Bar, Effra Pub, Dogstar, etc] are still going strong!

Brixton surprises us every time we visit him. This restaurant was a surprise that we are glad to have found, exquisite Latin American food at a good price. Very nice treatment. We will repeat.

I've lived here over 20 years now and I love it - it's changed a HUGE amount, but its vibrant and colourful people are the heart of the area. Brixton Market has been there for decades and is famed, but I do so wish they'd stop trying to re-brand the area Brixton Village! The food stalls and shops in the... More
