Battersea is located centrally, just south of the river Thames and boasts one of the most popular and largest public parks in the city. This area is most famous for sights such as Battersea Power station which is a Grade II-listed Art Deco masterpiece and the largest brick building in Europe, Battersea park which is home to the Peace Pagoda (a must visit as it is simply stunning) AND, and its beautiful setting on the River Thames.
Battersea is not short of unique boutiques, cafes and bars and is home to one of London’s most famous car boot sales (Battersea Car-boot Sale on Sundays) where you can pick up all sorts of weird & wonderful, unique memorabilia from your trip to London (and you don’t even have to give up your Sunday lie in as it starts at noon!)
We would suggest you visit the Antiques Market on Northcote Road – known as a best kept secret by the locals. – A must visit!
We would recommend taking a trip to Battersea Park which offers a huge variety of things from wonderful walks and beautiful views of the river, to the adventure playground, and If you love animals, you’re in the right place: the park has an enclosure for deer and the Park zoo has pygmy goats, lemurs and even meerkats for you to see.
