Brixton Tours

Brixton
Formerly one of London’s most notorious neighborhoods, Brixton has been transforming itself into one of South London’s coolest destinations. A youthful vibe and cultural diversity are Brixton’s strongest assets, and its large population of African and Caribbean residents has given rise to an excellent selection of ethnic restaurants.
 
The Basics
Stroll down Electric Avenue, Brixton’s main shopping street and you’ll find an eclectic mix of independent boutiques, hip bars, contemporary art galleries, and pop-up restaurants. Brixton Village arcade is crammed with ethnic restaurants; the lively Brixton Market is held daily; and a number of farmers’ markets, flea markets, and handicrafts markets are held throughout the year. Additional highlights of Brixton include the neighborhood’s colorful murals and graffiti art, and a vibrant nightlife and live music scene.
 
Immerse yourself in the rich atmosphere of the area on a guided walking tour. Private and group tours introduce guests to the best food and drinks served in Brixton, and highlight the area’s arts heritage with stops to check out murals, graffiti, and legendary music venues.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • Brixton is a must-visit for those with an interest in modern London history.
  • The area is also a big draw for foodies and fans of the arts.
  • Some people familiar with its past may be wary of Brixton, but the area has cleaned up a lot over the years and is safe and welcoming.
 
How to Get There
Brixton has its own tube station, in the heart of the commercial area. Brixton Station is the final stop at the southern end of the Victoria Line. Multiple bus routes (night and day) run from central London, including the No. 3 from Trafalgar Square.
 
When to Get There
The best time to visit Brixton is summer, when open-air music festivals take place throughout the area and warm temperatures draw bar drinkers outside to soak up the sun. The weekend is the best time to enjoy the nightlife and markets.
 
Musical History
Brixton, the birthplace of David Bowie (immortalized in a giant mural opposite the tube station) has a strong musical heritage. It has been mentioned in songs, including Eddy Grant’s smash “Electric Avenue” as well as The Clash’s “Guns of Brixton.” The O2 Brixton Academy—one of London’s best-loved music venues since it opened in 1983—has hosted performers from The Smiths to Madonna.
