Brixton station sits above street level and the series of bridges and viaducts and the arches beneath it help give the area its distinctive character. Trains to Brixton first called at the station in the 1860s, transforming the south London neighbourhood. Today, it is on the Chatham Main Line with trains to Brixton travelling between London Victoria and Orpington. Brixton station is about 100m from the London Underground station on the Victoria line. Since the arrival of the railway in the 19th century, Brixton Market has been a focal point for trading in the area, and a network of shops, cafes, bars and restaurants have grown around it. On their way to the shopping mecca that is Brixton, attentive visitors will spot three static travellers, statutes that have stood watch since 1986, on the two platforms. More culture in the form of famous Brixton Academy is a short walk north of the station.
