Welcome to Brixton

West London has Notting Hill. The east end has Shoreditch. As for south London? It’s hard to compare anywhere to Brixton, the trophy of reincarnation on the opposite side of the Thames. In the 19th and 20th centuries, the arrival of railways and industry brought wealth and prosperity to Brixton, and with a significant influx of residents the area became a key centre for business in London.

Sadly, most of this was destroyed in WWII, and the infamous Brixton riots followed in the 1980s. Yet throughout its colourful past, Brixton has remained a melting pot of culture and community, a character that has enabled it to return to its former glory today. Brixton is now firmly on the radar of Londoners; one of the city’s most lively and unique areas, popular with young professionals and families alike.


Property types in Brixton

Beautiful Georgian and Victorian terraces line Brixton’s streets, many of which have been converted into enviable period apartments mirroring those in much-lauded Clapham.

The area has also undergone considerable post-war development, and extensive regeneration in the last few years. It remains popular with investors, as well as with architects and designers seeking to utilise Brixton’s industrial heritage in their creations.
