• A rejuvenated Brixton district in London

    2010-08-08

    London is an incredibly popular destination for Europe travel, and vacationers who find themselves in the city will have no shortage of options when it comes to things to do. Whether it's a relaxing evening along the Southbank, catching a show in the West End, or high end shopping in Kensington, the city's various districts all offer their own unique flavor.

    But perhaps no story is as interesting as the tale of Brixton in South London. Facing financial hardships, many of the facilities at Brixton market were left unused just a year ago, according to The New York Times. Yet the community rallied around the area, saved it from demolition, and transformed it into one of the trendiest areas in the city.

    Travelers who stop by Brixton will find an eclectic mix of eateries, shops and musical performers. On Thursdays and Saturdays, the market is open until 10 PM, and the local neighborhood usually organizes things like workshops and concerts to keep patrons entertained.

    Brixton is the perfect place to grab a quick cup of coffee or a snack while exploring London. Whether its the homemade Italian food at Bellantoni's or the delicately-crafted sandwiches at Cornercopia, travelers will be glad they went off the beaten path a bit to visit the rejuvenated area of Brixton.
