I liked it here and thought it was quite a cool place (although one of my friends didn't but that may have been because it was raining!) There is a good selection of high street stores plus lots of independent shops. Brixton Village and Pop Brixton are both great - kind of markets with loads of cool places to eat.

We came here to see the memorial wall of Bowie. We discovered a lively neighborhood. We walked in the streets and visited the market. This is London off the beaten path.

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. So bars, cafes and and pop up street... More

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.
