You won't find a part of London as diverse in either history or culture, than this Electric hub that is Brixton. The ethnic diversity of Brixton is reflected in the food, markets, street art, murals, music and atmosphere of community and passion. But Brixton's past reflects the wider history of London: changing times have brought lightning fast transformations for areas like this one, taking it from poverty, to glamorous a Victorian suburb, to the hub of the Afro-Caribbean community since the 1950's. More recently, the turbulence of the 1980's saw hope emerge as the struggle for identity was realised by the local community. In this tour, you will hear fascinating stories, see iconic landmarks and smell mouthwatering smells of world cuisine. Highlights: - World Famous Markets - Street Art/Mural Art - Afro Caribbean History - Musical Roots and Culture - Brixton Academy - Pop Brixton - Electric Avenue - Skatepark - Immigration history - Black Cultural Archive - Community and Urban art projects - Cultural local icons eg. David Bowie What else you should know: - It's a walking tour, but there's not a lot of distance involved. Wear comfortable shoes! What to bring: - If it's raining or going to rain, please bring an umbrella.
