Neighbourhood Guide: Brixton

Brixton is always undergoing a 'trendvolution' with new things opening every week. Here's our neighbourhood guide to Brixton...


Your guide to making the most of any trip to the colourful neighbourhood of Brixton whilst staying at our serviced apartments in Brixton….

London is known globally for its exceptional restaurants, bars, nightlife, and its wealth of things to do. And as the city expands, Brixton has become an experiential paradigm. In recent years, the area has undergone a huge ‘trendvolusion’ and Brixton has become a hive of culture which just keeps on snowballing.

Not so long back we launched our first collection of serviced apartments in Brixton, our first endeavour outside of our hometown of Bristol. Since then, we’ve been busy wining, dining and checking out every corner of the suburban town to give our peeps (aka. Our guests) great advice on where to head during their stay.

Without further ado, here’s the rundown…
