Ash Finch Brixton Village

A community of vintage traders and artisan food sellers have transformed this old arcade. Though very popular with locals and visitors alike the covered walkways always have a sense of calm about them, so you can browse beautiful homewares, tempting produce and rails of colourful clothing in peace. Independent coffee shops and the original outpost of Honest Burger are on hand to help the hungry.

I haven't been to Brixton Village much since moving to Westminster but it's still one of my favourite places to visit for a chilled-out afternoon on the weekend. I love the multicultural vibe that is so unique to London as well as the variety of restaurants and bars. My favourite place to eat is Brixton Grill where you can get very generous portions of meat at a bargain price - their sangria is also one of my favourites!

I know there are quite a few clashes regarding the gentrification of Brixton. Has the expanse of Brixton Village added to this? Have all the new trendy restaurants meant that the local residence and business are being pushed out? Well this I can't answer. What I can say however, if I was to remove politics from this and simply turn up in Brixton Village having never visited before, I would think I had stumbled across an amazing place.

Characterful alleyways lead you through a large variety of restaurants representing food from around the globe. Interspersed are small grocery shops, bakeries and foreign food outlets. A few small clothes and accessories shops delight as well and the entire vibe of an evening is buzzy, friendly and welcoming.

My only gripe is the fact you have to pay to use the loo, which I think is ridiculous. No doubt it's down to money and mis-use but I am sure a tiny contribution from all the business (which could work out as little as 5 pence added to items on the menu to make up for it) would cover the cost of someone to clean and monitor it?

Anyway, whenever I am in the area, I head into the Village to explore and see if I can find some tasty food.....obvious I hope when I leave The Village I still find Brixton Market there, fully trading - and long may that stay.

Brixton used to be a lot different - it was never trendy or sought after. Fast forward a few years and this part of south London has finally got it's time to shine, halo and all. But it has always been an incredible place shining in its own light and for good reason. What you'll find here is a community feel that is lost in many parts of north, east and west London. It's friendly, lively and full to bursting with diverse culture, colour and energy! Food is cheap and you can enjoy a thoroughly good night out on your doorstep. Brixton Village is just an extension of that vibrancy under one roof and it's one of my favourite places to wander around. Europe, Asia, India, Africa and the Caribbean meet among quirky market stalls, restaurants and cafes, vintage boutiques, bakeries and independent art shops. Spend a few hours here and soak up the REAL buzz of Brixton. Saturday's are crazy busy, but then this is London - where isn't?

Brixton is changing.

Some of the changes are good other not so much.

Brixton Village is definitely a positive place to visit. It has the trendy vibe keeping a bit of what makes Brixton the great place it is - many different cultures all in one place.


If you haven't visit please do it soon, you will find antique shops, amazing coffee places and bakeries to outstanding restaurants, butcheries and even a cat that think he owns it all. 


Definitely one of my favorite places in south London.


Brixton deserves an award from the London chamber of commerce, for being the most versatile creative and multicultural location to enjoy international cuisines, fashions and at unbeatable prices-WELL DONE TO ALL! Margaret
