“Authentic London”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2014

I'm kicking myself that I didn't visit Brixton sooner! What an interesting and diverse place, and already swarming with hipsters. The Brixton Village is full of quirky stalls from around and world and amazing cafes bursting with feel good vibes!

“full of life!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 January 2014

An amazing vibrant place with one of the coolest ambiance in London. Highly recommended for a chicken jerk, chicken wings and great music venues. Good deals on the market and an impressive selection of wigs if you into that. A very down to earth place with a truly high spirit.

“Brilliant, vibrant place!! Go and see for yourself!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 January 2014

Many famous people have lived and visited Brixton, because it is the ideal place for real community cohesiveness and growth!! So many cultural groups live in Brixton and add a different dimension. The atmosphere is great , especially in the evenings and the weekends.
A little ( large) gem in South West London. With the famous Ritzy , the Academy Music Venue, the Bustling Famous Market and one of the last Windmills in London, Brixton should be on the tourist map. Enjoy!!

“You can sum it up in a sentence...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 December 2013 via mobile

The inmates of the infamous Brixton jail would agree with the title; for the rest of us, there is a rich ethnic mix of cultures, shops and eating places.
