About this experience
For over half a century Brixton was one of London's most high crime areas and was considered a no-go area for many Londoners. Simultaneously, it was also one of the most diverse and exciting neighborhoods in the city, known for its music, food, nightlife and unique atmosphere. On this tour, you will take a journey through Brixton's complex history and examine how this dynamic neighborhood continues to evolve today. From the arrival of the first Jamaicans on the Empire Windrush in 1948 to the uprising against racist policing in 1981, which was the largest explosion of violence in Great Britain for centuries and would change the nation forever, Brixton has been the scene of some of the most formative events in the UK over the last 70 years. You will learn about Brixton’s cultural legacy through music, ranging from reggae, David Bowie, and The Clash, and see murals from the area’s rising street art scene. You will also visit Brixton's markets which have become a major destination for London foodies. Thankfully, Brixton is longer the dangerous area it once was, your guide will tell you about how its newfound prosperity had led to gentrification which has its own adverse consequences.
