“The ins and outs of Brixton, the best place South of the river!”
“Street is quiet and totally residential, so not much of a buzz”
Life between Brixton, Camberwell and Herne Hill
The area is lovely. I'm in the middle of vibrant Brixton which is amazing during summer. Kings college hospital is near by. The only thing i think needs changing is the many council properties around the area.
Brixton’s blessed with excellent transport links, and there’s ample buses, tubes, trains and night buses making it easy to get around at any time of the day or night. There is also a rail station on Atlantic Road and Loughborough is a bit of a hidden gem, offering a fast train service into central London, whisking you into Victoria in a mere seven minutes. The station is situated two minutes away from the tube station (turn right and then first left up Atlantic Road. Climb the stairs to access the elevated station). Besides Train and tube Brixton is served 24 hours a day by a wide selection of bus/night buses running in all directions, with most of the major routes passing outside the tube station.
The good part of living here is that i'm between Brixton and Camberwell and Herne Hill Lots of great shops and activities to do in both Brixton and Camberwell. Brixton is attracting more and more high street shops such as Pret. There is lots of ways to commute and connect to pretty much everywhere in London. A few great parks in the area like Ruskin Park and Myett's fields park. These are all the great stuff of living in this street but the bad aspect is that the street is surrounded by many blocks of council property which attacks a partical sort of people. There is a youth centre on walking distance where a few stabbing incident have taken place and even murder.
Brixton is a lively, multicultural area with a down-to-earth vibe. Brixton Market offers street food and vintage finds, plus clothes and produce that reflect the area’s Caribbean roots. Casual eateries serving global fare line pedestrian-friendly Brixton Village. Late-night revellers hit celebrated bars and live-music venues such as the O2 Academy Brixton for rock gigs, and Hootananny for cutting-edge sounds.
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.
Street is quiet and totally residential, so not much of a buzz
Has gone a bit stale, needs some fresh investment
Transport is fine thanks to the tube network, I get the tube every day, cycle occasionally, only really get busses when visiting friends houses, not for my normal day to day.
Street is quiet and totally residential, so not much of a buzz. No issues with neighbours and no anti social element
All the basics are here, but I have to go to the centre of London for anything I really want especially for clothes and jewelerry. I would like to see more boutiques and clothes shops.
Overall a very cultured and convenient place to live.
