Read on to discover what Battersea has to offer:
The Power Station
Battersea Power Station is the largest brick building in Europe and once generated enough electricity to power the whole of London. De-commissioned in 1983, the Power Station is currently undergoing redevelopment which, on completion in 2020, will see it permanently opened to the public for the first time. In the meantime, public tours of the famous building run every few weeks via ballot due to high demand. Be the first to hear about tours this winter by signing up to the database at batterseapowerstation.co.uk.
Circus West Village
Take a walk along the river and discover London’s newest food and cultural quarter which has started to welcome a collection of independent restaurants to Battersea. Relax and watch the world go by or head into one of the new restaurants for a bit to eat or drinks with friends. Following the opening of Mother pizza restaurant and No.29 Power Station West bar and Boom Cycle spinning studio, several restaurants will be opening this winter including Italian restaurant Fiume, by renowned chef Francesco Mazzei, and the newest branch of The CoffeeWorks Project. At the heart of this new community is The Battersea General Store, a local convenience store specialising in local produce and mouth-watering produce from around the world. Also coming soon are Vagaband, a boutique wine shop, Paul Edmonds’ 2nd salon and lots more to be announced soon.
Battersea Park was opened by Queen Victoria in 1858 and there are so many things to do! Together with incredible views of the Thames, it is a great destination for the whole family, where kids are able to ride the pedalos on the boating lake, visit the zoo (complete with lemurs, meerkats and pygmy goats) and the adventure playground, and grown ups can enjoy the park's own art gallery, The Pump House. If some quiet time is what you're after, you can also visit the Peace Pagoda for some quiet reflection next to some breath-taking sights.
Battersea Park Zoo
Enjoy a warm welcome and a world of adventure at Battersea Park Children’s Zoo. Meet magical animals including meerkats, monkeys, rabbits, emu, Kune Kune pigs, otters and wallabies and enjoy face-painting, mask-making and animal art at special events year round. With a life-sized tractor and fire engine, sand pits and amusement rides children can have hours of playtime fun.
So why not get on board and visit one of London's most exciting and innovative mixed use neighbourhoods with Thames Clippers, the fastest and most frequent fleet on the river!
