The Northern and Victoria tube lines in Clapham and Brixton respectively are both within a ten to fifteen-minute walk, whilst the cafes, bars and restaurants of up-and-coming Acre Lane are easily accessible, with local heroes such as Boqueria Tapas, The Beast of Brixton, and Blank Coffee, to name a few, all on the doorstep. In one direction there is all Brixton has to offer with Brockwell Park and the extremely popular Brixton Village, to large brand shops and first-rate transport links. In the other direction is the vibrant and diverse Clapham High Street, offering great nightlife, and the green open spaces of Clapham Common. Well-heeled Abbeville Village is also within walking distance, with its multitude of boutiques, coffee shops, pubs and restaurants.

Brixton is a melting pot of culture, cuisine and creativity. An explosion of inventive, new restaurants, pop-ups, fashion stores and art galleries sit alongside the many great pubs, music venues and nightclubs that have been around for years. Transport links are excellent, with London Underground (Victoria Line) trains reaching central London in 12 minutes. If you’re craving green space, Brockwell Park and its famed Art Deco lido are close by. Brixton brings together all the best things about London and is one of the most vibrant and diverse places to live south of the river.
