A change of fortune?
Brixton is booming. The area is seeing gentrification on a grand scale – becoming one of the hottest areas to rent and buy in London. Why? Many would put it down to the influence of Brixton Village, with its host of trendy shops, stylish bars and fantastic restaurants. Five years ago, the owners of the Granville Arcade offered start-up businesses the chance of six months’ free rent. Fast forward to today, and it attracts people from all over town who are keen to sample some of the best new cooking in a buzzing location.
But Brixton is so much more than just a foodie destination. Events like Brixton Splash celebrate Brixton’s rich history, as a large percentage of its population is made up of London’s Afro-Caribbean community, who run some of the best shops, cafes and venues in the capital. It’s a big draw for music fans too, with Brixton Academy playing host to a diverse selection of bands and solo artists. Head to Brixton if you’re looking for a lively night out – you won’t be disappointed!
Regeneration, Community & Identity
Part of Brixton’s appeal is its incredible transport links – you can get to Oxford Circus in around 12 minutes on the tube or hop on a bus to almost anywhere. While the centre of Brixton is busy and lively (check out Electric Avenue), you can also head up Brixton Hill towards the quieter 125-acre Brockwell Park, which is one of the prettiest green spaces in London. Great for families with kids, the area also has a real pull for younger renters who want cool places to kick back in after work. And cool it definitely is – check out POP Brixton, a pioneering new space created to showcase the best new start-ups from Brixton and Lambeth. It has everything from local food and drink entrepreneurs, to quirky shops and hot new artists in a specially designed space.
