An Introduction To London’s Cool Caribbean Scene

If you love Caribbean culture – the music, the festivals, the food and drink – simply head to London. Apart from the sun, nearly every area in London has something Caribbean to help spice the locale up. Whether you’re looking for a plate full of jerk chicken, a glass of rum punch or a summer festival, our guide will help you navigate London and find the coolest Caribbean vibes.

Two of the trendiest places in London right now are Brixton and Harlesden. Unsurprisingly, both areas have an affluent Caribbean community. Brixton early in the morning is a great place to visit cafes; there’s an abundance to choose from. Negril serves Caribbean toast (spiced toast served with cinnamon and vanilla and toasted coconut), traditional cornmeal porridge and smoothies (the Caribbean Queen drink with papaya, pineapple, mango and a splash of dairy milk) will transport you from the busy streets of London to a tranquil beach in Jamaica.
