Brixton in London
Why locals love it
Brixton's history is a eccentric patchwork of thriving beginnings, WW2 bombings, depressions, riots and immigration. What's left today is a regenerated vibrant scene, home to huge markets, international cuisine, shopping, night life and London's Caribbean community.
