Brixton is part of the London Borough of Lambeth and falls into two postcode areas. The SW2 part begins south of Acre Lane and extends southwards to include either side of Brixton Hill, with Kings Avenue forming the border to the West and Tulse Hill forming the border to the East. The SW9 part of Brixton is North of Brixton Underground Station and is divided by Brixton Road, covering the Loughborough Junction area which includes the roads either side of Coldharbour Lane.
Brixton is one of London’s most multi-cultural areas and boasts a thriving shopping centre and market with an array of stalls and arcades, selling everything from ethnic foods and fruit to jewellery and fabrics. There are also the usual high street chains and the town center has recently seen the redevelopment of Windrush Square and the Ritzy Cinema which now serves as the cultural hub for Brixton with a cafe downstairs and a great live-music venue upstairs.
Brixton has an exciting social scene and its enviable nightlife makes it the heart of London’s urban scene. The Brixton Academy is one of London's most famous live venues and there is also the draw of popular venues such as The Fridge, Mass, DexClub, Plan B and The Windmill.
There is also a great choice of restaurants including Bah Humbug, serving vegetarian food and located in a crypt, Fujiyama offering Japanese noodles and the Satay Bar with a trendy mix of Malaysian and Indonesian dishes.
If all of this leaves you exhausted and you crave a little peace and tranquility, Brockwell Park provides respite in the form of walled gardens, ponds, a popular open air lido, and public tennis courts. There is also a traditional bowling green and a Regency lodge with a public tea room.
The Brixton area is formed of a mix of properties with everything from Victorian houses and conversions to inter-war semi's, purpose-built flats and ex-local authority properties. During the mid-1990’s Brixton re-invented itself as a trendy and fashionable area and has since seen an influx of young professionals moving to the area, which has transformed the property market and pushed prices up.
Brixton has a Victoria line underground station, an over-ground train station, and a host of bus routes serving destinations throughout London.
"Ryan contacted me about letting my flat with Beresford Residential. I was very impressed with his enthusiastic, professional manner and the offer that Beresfords put to me. Within 24 hours he had approximately 10 prospective tenants shown round my flat with a few making offers on that very night. 3 days later my new tenant moved in. I thought he did an excellent job. I will be using Beresford Residential in the future after the excellent handling of my flat at every level. I have never encountered this kind of service from an estate agents. Thanks Ryan."
