Brixton tube station is a London Underground station on Brixton Road in the Brixton district of the London Borough of Lambeth in south London. The station is the southern terminus of the Victoria line. The station was opened on 23 July 1971 by the London Transport Executive. It has high usage for an inner suburban station with 27.2 million entries and exits during 2013.
The station is in Brixton Road and about 100 m from Brixton Railway Station (on the London Victoria to Orpington line, operated by South Eastern). Although the route of London Overground also runs close to Brixton tube station, there is no station in Brixton on this route because the Inner South London Line is on high railway arches, and Overground trains pass overhead.
