Battersea

Your All In London guide to Battersea

Battersea is located in the London Borough of Wandsworth and is situated in South West London. Considered very much inner city London, Battersea is less than 3 miles away from Charing Cross, making it readily accessible from just about any part of Central London.

Battersea’s most famous landmarks are Battersea Power Station, famously depicted on the cover of Pink Floyd’s ‘Animals’ and the sprawling Battersea Park, frequent host to funfairs and other events throughout the year, and let’s not forget Battersea Dogs and Cats Home, the UK’s most well-known animal sanctuary.

Considered by some to be designated for Chelsea’s residential overspill, Battersea has in fact existed since Saxon times; Lavender Hill is so-called because up until the Industrial Revolution the area’s main business was the production and sale of flowers, fruit and vegetables. Today Battersea is a relatively affluent neighbourhood with wine bars and gastropubs galore, as well as the splendid Battersea Arts Centre which has an eclectic programme of music and theatrical events.
