The ins and outs of Brixton, the best place South of the river!
All in all, my favourite thing about Brixton is that it’s area with a melting pot of different cultures and backgrounds, which is what makes it a uniquely vibrant place to live. You won’t see me moving away anytime soon! The atmosphere in Brixton is definitely one of rapid gentrification - you can see the way in which it has gone rapidly upmarket in recent years, but has worked hard to retain it’s original character, and not lose sight of its roots. As with most inner London places, I wouldn’t necessarily called Brixton the most child friendly area, but then again I haven’t personally researched the local schools, which I’m sure are very good. Objectively speaking, Brixton’s probably not the safest area either, but I personally rarely feel unsafe in Brixton due to the volume of people always out and about. Also, I’d say it’s definitely good for pets with Brockwell Park so close by.
First things first, it’s transport heaven, with the super frequent Victoria Line (you never seem to be waiting longer than a minute!), and in non-COVID times, there is night tube every 10 minutes which is great. Brixton is very well served by buses, which go just about anywhere. I work in East London, and it is a little frustrating that the overground line passes over Brixton, but there is no station - if I want to use it I have to walk to Clapham High Street which is not ideal. Also, I’m a keen cycler and don’t feel like the 2 Santander Bike docking stations in central Brixton is anywhere near sufficient for the demand they get - they’re always empty in the mornings! I would like to see maybe 2-3 more dotted around. Brixton rush hour is not too much of an issue as it’s the end of the Victoria Line so I always get a seat, although the times I have used a rush hour bus there is definitely always a lot of traffic. I like the cycle superhighways near Brixton, they make me feel a lot safer when biking.
I live on Atlantic Road, so there is never a quiet moment! Either trains are coming and going, or people are using the shops below/going to Brixton Market or the Village Market. We have double glazing so I don’t really mind it, if anything I enjoy the character living in Central Brixton brings. I don’t own a car so can’t comment on parking availability, but the benefit of living just off Brixton Market is instead of having our own wheelie bin, the protocol is to leave our bin bags on the street where they are collected multiple times a day, so we never have an issue with things like running out of space in our bin. Most of the neighbouring shops haven’t converted their upstairs into apartments, so besides the flat above us we have no immediate neighbours, which is great. Both us and the flat above rent, and all of us are in our 20s.
I live in SW9, Brixton, and it really is food heaven. I always pick up my fresh fruit and veg from Brixton Market on Electric Avenue, and it’s great to support the local traders. Also, every world cuisine you could want is in Brixton Village Market - my favourite is Okan, which does Japanese Okonomiyaki pancakes. Brixton also has all the convenience stores like Pret and Brixton, which is great when I’m dashing to work. The charity shops (Barnardos, British Heart Foundation etc) are a great browse, and always have some interesting clothing/furniture finds. I love the Ritzy cinema too, it’s great for seeing arthouse films as well as new releases. For green space, Brockwell Park is (literally) a breath of fresh air from the hustle and bustle of central Brixton - it’s great for morning runs, and some parts of the park give fab views of the London skyline. One amenity that would be nice is a Morrisons close by, since I get 10% off shopping with my NHS staff card.

I love the local atmosphere it is mainly very uplifting and energetic give you a real feel of community. It is quite up market but there is still all the amazing self employed stalls and I just love them
There are two tube stations round the corner that are easy to access with Brixton being wheelchair accessible rush hour can be a bit tricky but thankfully the staff are always kind and extremely helpful it is always as clean as can be I know the staff try there best and that's all anyone can ask for. There is a very wide range of busses thankfully takeing you all over London which is so very helpful.
It is a really good area to live in and kind people sometimes is can be very loud with police sirens but that is understandable I think mainly family's and couples live on our street as well as a wonderful place called evolve housing and support that help young people with housing issue and what not. The social behaviour of some people can be quite nerve racking at times but I have never felt unsafe
There is a high range of shops near me as we are also so close to Brixton we have shop's ranging from Poundland to Sainsbury's and Morley's to TK MAX . All these shops and there workers help so much with in the community another thing I love about our area is the feel of community there are so many self started and self owned restraints and stalls that when you go out you really feel like your helping the community and the people around. I think one of the most loved places in our area is the skate park it's always amazing to walk by and see all these young people gathering and having a laugh such talented people a real feel of community space nice to just site and watch on a lovely day.
it's at times very quiet and more families have moved to houses around the area so it has become more family friendly over time.
It's overall a safe place like any other place you will see people that may make it seem like a strange area but, we rarely have bad things happening in the area it's at times very quiet and more families have moved to houses around the area so it has become more family friendly over time.
I personally think it's quite in terms of the tube and buses around the area they come every 3 to 5 mins it gives you enough time to get to a place if you are running late. I haven't seen big issues to consider appart from sometimes it can be quite busy so it's difficult to get inside the transport in the mornings, rush hour time however, after 9 it slowly goes back to normality.
I do feel at times it doesn't feel safe at night it seems there's a few more gangs at certain times sometimes ramdom people can approach you and make you uncomfortable because you just don't know what they want and how they will react as most seemed under the influence of alcohol or even drugs.
The area I live is very diverse in terms of shops you can find a variety of different types of restaurant and cafe shops which are cosy and comfortable to just have a friendly catch up with a freind. The area is quite vibrant regardless of the time of day people come from other places to try the bars and clubs near places such at Brixton Clapham ect. It's a placed filled with hidden suprises you just never know what you will find or even try! I do think there could be more things for young people to do in the future as is evident more young people like this area.
I would recommend Clapham to a friend

Good thing is that there is a mix between everything- shops (local and franchise) and parks for leisure and having a good time.
