Brixton Pillars are a collection of independently minded shops, cafés, restaurants and bars in the famous arches – 2 minutes from Brixton Tube and footsteps away from the mainline station, take a short journey to experience the real community of Brixton.
Brixton Arches has been home to independent shops, cafes and restaurants for over 150 years. Since Marks & Spencer launched with the first penny bazaar in 1903, the Arches have been a magnet for industrious traders serving the wider community across South London and beyond.
Throughout the years local traders representing many communities have sold their wares in fabrics and homewares; nourishing the neighbourhood with dishes from Jamaica to Nigeria, Portugal to Peru. They have brought with them traditional foods, arts, culture and textiles that have helped to make Brixton a colourful and popular shopping destination.
They are the Brixton Pillars, unique businesses who have a special place in the heart of the community. They are perfectly complimented by a new, modern wave of independently minded traders with bespoke, well-crafted businesses.
