Easter is all about renewal of life and new beginnings. Battersea has seen an incredible re-generation programme in recent years and has been converted into one of London’s most exciting residential districts. Here are a few reasons why.
1. Battersea Power Station
The transformation of the Grade II*-listed icon Battersea Power Station has transformed Battersea into a vibrant new neighbourhood beside the Thames. Once a powerhouse that provided a fifth of London’s power, it has now been redeveloped into a shopping centre/lifestyle hub that boasts no end of swanky stores, places to eat and drink, gyms, hotels, and a seasonal Christmas ice rink.
2. The Northern Line Extension
With the launch of the Northern line extension plugging Battersea into the Underground network for the first time. The new 3.2km branch line from Kennington forges a direct link from Nine Elms to Westminster, the City and Leicester Square, bringing them within a 15-minute journey on the London Underground.
3. Battersea Park
With a boating lake, children’s zoo, Go Ape, art gallery and various manicured gardens, Battersea Park is a day out in its own right. Even if you pass through for a stroll, it makes a worthwhile detour from Battersea’s busy town centre and the stretch beside the Thames — where you’ll find London’s Buddhist Peace Pagoda — is especially lovely, with views across the river to Chelsea, linked by the ornate Albert Bridge.
