I just don’t get the fascination many have for Brixton. Okay, the town has some interesting architecture and one or two interesting shops but, goodness, has everyone gone nose-blind to the vile odours that emanate from Brixton Market and the many Caribbean/African/Asian fish, meat and...More

Brixton is a great place to go if you want a lively part of London different from any other. I really love it here for their food markets and pubs. There are some great nights to be had here as well as fun days.

It is an interesting place where you will have the market where you can try different types of food in an interesting environment. You can take the Victoria line and you can walk around. Nice atmosphere.

Very vibrant location for shopping eating and visiting. There is a tube station running into central london on the Victoria line, an amazing market with lots of Caribbean food stalls

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.
