It was the only reason I went to Brixton. It’s a gorgeous mural by Australian artist Jimmy C. I absolutely adore it. I was delighted to see that it’s been protected now to save it from vandals and more people writing on it. Brixton is...More

If your a fan then it’s a great place to visit. Every now and then people get together and have a sing and dance to Bowie music and paint the red stripe on their faces. Really lovely!

I went the day after the sad news in January 2016- very poignant memorial with a large cross section of people attending- well worth a visit if you are a fan of the great man

A thing of beauty and a must see of if you're anywhere near the area. Some nice benches next to it give you somewhere to sit and remember.
