The best Caribbean food and the rum punch really packs a punch! The platter is amazing and the saltfish fritters with the gravy are unbelievable...

A great place for an early morning run, where you feel like you aren't even in London - yet you are only 10 minutes from central London on the Victoria line. There are tennis courts, a gym and a Lido too if running isn't your thing.

Been serving amazing breakfast and lunch in the heart of Brixton since 1993. The chicken salad is a winner judging by the queues outside the door!

Unique homemade cocktails in the middle of Brixton Market, made using their own secret recipes. A small place, but very nice for a date. They also sell food.

A Brixton institution, this bar has amazing roof terraces and serves food in the day too. You can dance the night away until the early hours when they have DJs playing.

Brixton is such a vibrant area and has lots of energy. I have lived here since 1971!
A great range of places to eat out in and around the market, quick and easy to get into central London too.
Great food, great transport links and some nice quiet areas and parks.
I love the diversity of the area. That you can walk down streets and find beautiful artisan cafes and one-off design shops alongside Caribbean food stalls and lots of second hand shops. I love the architecture of the area with the Ritzy, library and city hall all showing remnants of an older Brixton. I love that you have access to some of the lovelier areas (in my opinion) in London, with Brockwell Park and its amazing views of London or Herne Hill and its lovely shops and cafes. The people in the area also make it unique. From the religious preachers outside of KFC to the steel drum players and the friendly flower man outside the station. Any walk through the area shows you something new and exciting.
The transport links are great into the West End and the City where I do most of my work. With its lido and open space, nearby Brockwell Park is a fantastic place to get my exercise fix. The choice of food at the thriving Brixton Village is endless and there are plenty of bars, pubs and clubs to entertain you into the late/early hours.
Brixton Market caters to all and is always buzzing.
A multicultural area, always awake within a short cycle to central London or Kent. Interesting food and nice characters all around!
Electric Avenue, the first street in the UK to ever have street lighting.
Vibrant culture, young hip and trendy!
