Railton Road runs between Brixton and Herne Hill in the London Borough of Lambeth.
In the 1970s, Railton Road was a run down area that was known as "The Frontline" locally. The 1981 Brixton riot, the most serious riot in the United Kingdom during the 20th century, started here. The George public house was burnt down and a number of other buildings were damaged.
The road is designated the B223.
