  • * Comb the **boutiques**, eateries and artisanal shops of Brixton Village Arcade. 
  • * Follow a trail of the neighbourhood’s finest **street art**. Including the David Bowie mural.

  • * Take a wander along Brixton’s leafy Victorian terraced streets and churchyards. 
  • * Finish your tour at one of London’s finest pubs. If the weather permits, unwind in the beautiful beer garden!
  • Take a venture into one of London’s most unusual and electrifying neighbourhoods. Holding a distinctly Caribbean flavour, Brixton glows bright with an array of art galleries, local markets, pop-up restaurants and bustling bars. Accompany a local guide and unearth the most beautiful of these, as well as its wealth of historical sites and architectural gems.
  • Learn about its transformation from a well-to-do neighbourhood in Victorian times (having the first electrically lighted market, and department store in the City), to the centre of a deeply impoverished Caribbean community in post-war times. Hear of its place as the epicentre of racial tension in the 1980’s. A tension which led to the infamous Brixton Riots throughout the decade.
  • Today the area is undergoing a process of revitalization and artistic flourish. Street art coats the walls, night revellers flock and the world's greatest musicians grace its concert halls. But it retains its cosmopolitan, unpolished soul.
