Start your day

Begin your day with a feeling of calm by booking a before-work class at Brixton Yoga. Or if you want to get your blood pumping, try out the early bird workout at Miguel’s Boxing Gym.

Go for lunch

You don’t have to go far for lunch - after all, CAYA is part coworking space, part cafe. But if you want to see some more of Brixton, stroll over to Pop Brixton. Housed in former shipping containers, this collection of local, independent businesses is home to some insta-worthy food, such as fried chicken burgers at Other Side Fried or Greek wraps and halloumi fries at Souvlaki Street.

Take a break

Brixton is known for its street art (you’re probably familiar with the Ziggy Stardust mural) so why not pound the streets and see what you can spot? If you want to plan your wanderings, the Brixton Society has a map labelling all the official murals.

If you’d rather get away from the traffic, you can do no better than head to Brockwell Park. Although in the city, some parts of it feel almost like a forest. As well as 50 hectares of green space, there’s also great views, an open air swimming pool and a cute miniature railway.

After work

Brixton is home to its own Brewery (unsurprisingly called Brixton Brewery), started by 2 local couples back in 2013. Since then they have opened a tap room where you can drink the beers right where they are made. One perk: not only can you order in takeaway, but if you do, they’ll give you a free beer.

It’s worth checking to see whether there is anything of interest on at the O2 Academy Brixton or Electric Brixton. But if nothing piques your fancy, why not round off the day with a trip to one of the oldest cinemas in the country, the Ritzy Cinema?
