What’s Brixton like? There’s no point in pretending that Brixton is for everyone. You either love it or hate it. Those who favour it, enjoy the diverse cultural experience of living in this working-class suburb, complete with amazing nightlife and worldwide cuisines. Those who hate it are terrified by Brixton’s association with crime (drugs and violence) and the constant noise of police sirens.
Either way, this controversial area is very practical. Transport-wise, it’s at the end of the Victoria line, which takes you into the West End (Victoria, Green Park or Oxford Circus) in just a few minutes. There’s also a good collection of shops on the high street, including Marks and Spencers, the Body Shop and New Look to name a few.
