Are you looking for things to do in London this weekend? Here’s an itinerary on how to spend a day in Brixton Village.
In the morning get your caffeine kick from Greg at Addis in Brixton – a specialist in Ethiopian coffee.
Then head over the road to Rachel & Malika’s and start making your way around all the independent artisan shops.
In African Queen Fabrics you’ll find the viral TikTok quilted jacket, available in every print you could ever want.
Check out Circus for some interior design treats – here you can pick up the kind of items that will have every guest asking you where you got it from.
After you’ve walked a lap of all the shops, you’ll be needing a rest – grab a seat at Station 26 – everything on their menu is gluten free, including the burgers!
If you’ve got a sweet tooth – pick up a cookie from Whipped or head to some of the traditional traders like Ma Soda or Latin & Caribbean Food Store and transport yourself to the islands with a fresh coconut.
Leona’s is one not to miss, as well as Lion Vibes Records. In fact, you literally won’t miss Lion Vibes because you’ll hear the reggae beats from a mile away. Pop in here to explore new and vintage vinyls, and if you come back later at night you might even find a little party going on.
This is the point where you say it’s 5pm somewhere and head to Kraft Brixton to test some local beers. Sit out the front if you fancy some people watching and let the smells of the Village build your appetite for dinner.
La Nonna in Market Row is where you’ll find the sweet comfort of pasta-y goodness before you head back across to Lost in Brixton in Granville Arcade. The perfect way to end the night – good cocktails, a live DJ and if it’s a clear night a stunning view above. Enjoy Brixton Village!
