Between WWI and WWII, Brixton was the third busiest shopping centre in London. It had one of the first department stores in the country and, of course, the famous market halls – now listed buildings.
A more proactive management regime has encouraged a wide range of new tenants which has revitalised the whole area. The Brixton Market tour on 11 October, organised by the Friends of Dulwich Picture Gallery and led by local experts from the Brixton Society, will give you an insight into the area’s vibrant history.
