Brixton Area Guide, SW2/SW9

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.
  • 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.
  • Brixton Village comprises of street arcades, shops and markets such as Friday Market, Bakers and Flea Market, Makers Market, Retro and Vintage Market, Brix Mix Market and Sunday Farmers markets.
  • For entertainment, you have absolutely everything you need! Alongside wonderful bars and extraordinary cuisine options, there is the Carling Brixton Academy, the Fridge and even the Ritzy cinema.
  • Think you’re seeing things? No, that is a windmill. Re-opened in 2011 (after closing in 1990), this 19th century windmill now hosts windmill tours, art exhibitions and special seasonal events.
