Join us on this fascinating tour of Brixton, one of the most vibrant and colourful boroughs of London. We are a genuine Brixton’s father-daughter duo, I am a Blue Badge tourist guide Eddie Lerner, accompanied by my lovely daughter Julia. We will show you all of our favourite spots in Brixton, from David Bowie’s mural, the Fridge where the Pet Shop Boys, the Smiths and Grace Jones used to playing, take you to Will Smith’s favourite Pizza place and shows you where Nelson Mandela got to experience the full extent of Brixton people’s love for him. That an much more. Shall we begin?
