Latest reviews | Events in Brixton | 10 Places to Stay

Brixton, a colourful south-London suburb, is overcoming a problematic past to emerge as an exciting place to visit and to live, with the handsome Victorian houses, cosmopolitan street culture, central location and excellent transport links appealing to families and young professionals alike. At the heart of everything is Brixton Market, really a collection of markets operating under one banner. Dating back to the 1870s, this is one of Europe's biggest Afro-Caribbean food marts, although all the usual market fare is here too. Moving forward from the 1980s riots and the nail bomb attack of 1999, the people of Brixton like nothing better than a festival. The annual Splash carnival finds sound systems set up in the streets, the Country Show takes place in nearby Brockwell Park, the Windmill Festival raises funds to restore Brixton's windmill to working order, and the Urban Art Fair sees local artists displaying paintings all around town. Brixton Art Gallery considers itself to be "at the heart of a renaissance". Nightlife includes chic bars and restaurants, clubs and small music venues, while Carling Brixton Academy, The Fridge and Mass cater for larger audiences. As a symbol of Brixton's regeneration, guided walking tours are a new attraction.
