  • Small but nicely maintained exhibition on 100 years of black culture in British music. £3 for an audio experience.
  • I was very pleased took me back a bit to see things from my youth a really nice experience.
  • It was a long wait for the building to be refurbished and it was certainly worth the wait. The centre is located in contemporary and well organised space in Brixton. I have visited for a talk and had a tour when the centre first opened. The collections include archived papers, books, and artefacts. If you are researching race relations in the UK it's should be on your list of facilities to visit. There is a small cafe on site but I have never eaten there and so cannot comment on the quality of food and beverages.
  • Great place - cool exhibitions and events. I love their cafe and helpful people on reception. Beautiful building. Clean. Easy to get to. Much needed addition to Brixton.
  • One of my favourite places in London. Engaging exhibitions and short courses. Excellent cafe.

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
