Brixton is in the borough of Lambeth, click the links to see other regions.
Located centrally in South London, Brixton is in the London Borough of Lambeth. Brixton has become renowned for the six large housing estates that account for most of the population in this region. From a visitor’s point of view, Brixton is famous for its markets and shopping.

Today, Brixton contains a real mix of inhabitants, with some people who have lived there for generations and others latching on to the new trendy image that the region projects. As Brixton is less than four miles from the centre of London, it is increasingly becoming popular with professionals and families.

Brixton’s character is changing. The 1981 riots and the racial tension in the area gave Brixton a dangerous image, however in recent years young middle class professionals have started to move in, attracted by cheap house prices and good transport links. Step out of the tube station and you will find a bustling, noisy high street replete with commuters pacing towards their destinations, people touting their wares and other assorted characters; there are Caribbean and Asian eateries aplenty and cheap shops – don’t miss the lively Brixton Market on Electric Avenue.

Brixton’s nightlife hasn’t quite got there yet, although Plan B has an eclectic programme of club nights and Brixton Academy is still alive and well, despite being taken over by o2 (along with many other of London’s live music venues).
