What you'll do
Begin your day with a visit to Brixton market, a microcosm of the diversity, creativity, and sense of community that this area is known for. Offering everything from handmade leather bags and woven trinkets to organic produce and authentic street food from all corners of the globe - you’ll see how the area has stayed true to its multi-cultural roots.
If you fancy a visit to a couple of the unique and quirky shops on offer; from an amusing second hand bookshop, to an established fabric specialist, a vintage record shop to a Portuguese bakery, and a number of fresh fruit and veg pop-ins in between, there's something for everyone.
If you're keen to get out of the urban jungle for a moment, take a trip to a well-known community garden. This place is proudly maintained by locals in the area and the well-loved foliage and fauna provide a relaxing contrast from the bustling vibe of the rest of Brixton.
Ready for something a little different? Have your Local Host introduce you to some of the best street art in London, painted by the locals themselves. Brixton's urban art scene is ever-changing, and behind the vibrant and eclectic murals there are numerous stories and political messages which your Local Host can tell you plenty about.
If after all that you're feeling a little sleepy, drop into one of the independent coffee shops for a hot drink, or if you're after something a little stronger your Local Host will be able to recommend some of the best spots to grab a cocktail or craft beer later on.
However you spend your day, you'll get to you know your Local Host and they can recommend the best spots they know you’ll love, so you can eat, drink, shop and party like a local during the rest of your trip.

We felt like real Londoners
It was our visit number 3 to London and we really wanted to get under the skin of the city and we found this Brixton tour by chance. It was the first time we heard about this place in london but we said why not? And city unscripted match us to Mr Sean Taylor who was just amazing and made us laugh so much trying to speak very bad spanish with us. But Sean knows Brixton so so well and we were so amazed of this area of the city which is so surprising and so energetic and cool. We met some of the people that run some shops and it was great to feel like we were part of Brixton. Muchas gracias por todo!

I thoroughly enjoyed my tour with Lorena. She was knowledgeable, personable and fun. I learned so much about Brixton and the many opportunities to enjoy good food. I was a last minute booking and she was accommodating and professional. When visiting London again I would book another tour with CityUnscripted and Lorena.

I am so glad I started my trip with Sean-Taylor
Sean-Taylor Williams was my host. He showed me the city of London while also providing me with the history and interesting facts about each location. In one day, we thoroughly explored Brixton, Soho, Camden and other places. After my tour with Sean-Taylor, I was able to effectively navigate the Underground to go anywhere I needed to go in London. Sean-Taylor is extremely personable and knowledgeable. I am so glad I started my trip with Sean-Taylor, working with Sean-Taylor set the precedent for
