Known as much for its markets as its multicultural community, Brixton sits at the end of the Victoria line, offering shops, restaurants, bars and more to those who seek them. Local landmarks include Lambeth Town Hall (above), London's Chocolate Museum and the 130 year old Morley's department store.
