Brixton Station, Brixton Road, London SW9 8HE, London
On the walk you’ll hear all about Brixton’s rich history – from it’s time as London’s premier suburban shopping centre, to its transformation to one of London’s great Caribbean and ethnic centres – and onto its current resurgence as a cool place to live, work and spend an evening.
Meeting point: outside Brixton tube station at 2pm.
The walk will take around two and a half hours.
Our guide for the afternoon is Barrie. He has Brixton in his veins and he hopes his enthusiasm for the area will rub off on everyone who journeys with him on this walk. He will give you new insights into the infamous Brixton riots, he’ll take you to see the shop his parents opened in 1937 and also tell you of the area’s “golden days”.
You’ll visit a street that was immortalised in a number one hit single and a building that featured in Barrie’s early years that certainly wasn’t number one with him!
You’ll also hear the histories of Brixton’s many famous music venues – where they were and what they are now.
The tour will be illustrated by historic photographs which will help enhance your walk experience.
