Staying in one of our Battersea serviced apartments puts you right in the heart of London. What’s more, this is London for Londoners – a thriving and transformed area bustling with things to do and places to be. Battersea apartments are highly sought after as they put you in the centre of London, surrounded by fantastic shops, restaurants, and bars. Once a tiny fishing village mentioned in the Domesday Book, then an industrial hub, Battersea is now a cosmopolitan hub with its own distinct feel and character.
Battersea serviced apartments draw a mixture of leisure and business travellers. Battersea is a strikingly transformed area that sits just south of the Thames, in the Borough of Wandsworth. Once an industrial area, and indeed characterised by the defunct (and fabulously repurposed) Battersea Power Station, Battersea is now a vibrant and rejuvenated area popular with Londoners and tourists. It’s safe to say that when you choose Battersea apartments, you’re choosing to stay in one of the trendiest areas of London. More and more luxury apartments are being developed here, and the prime riverside location and wonderful green spaces make it an enviable part of the capital. Battersea benefits from one of the largest parks in London. Beyond the green space, Battersea is a lively spot boasting some of London’s best shops, restaurants, and bars.
Explore the best that Battersea has to offer.
Offering serene tranquillity in the midst of this urban heartland, Battersea Park helps create a landscape of leafy London in one of the most populated areas. The ponds and fountains make a wonderful backdrop for a summer picnic. There are also many concession stands and food outlets here too. Don’t miss the incredible fireworks here in November. The park is also home to the Peace Pagoda with four bronze gilded statues. There’s even a Go Ape high ropes course here too.
Battersea is a great place for shopping. From the fantastic market on Northcote Road, perfect for arts, crafts, and gifts, through to one of London’s hottest shopping spots including chains and independent stores in the recently opened Battersea Power Station shopping centre. The Art Deco Turbine Hall offers a shopping experience unlike any other. Nine Elms Sunday Market is great for fresh produce and more.
In Battersea Park, you’ll find Battersea Zoo. Indeed, the park and zoo are just two reasons why Battersea serviced apartments are popular for families. Mostly small animals have their home at the zoo (check out the cute chinchillas), and it’s a fun and enjoyable day out.
New to the Battersea list of things to do is Lift 109 which takes you 109m up to a 360-degree viewing platform. It’s a great and novel way to view London, from one of the iconic power station chimneys.
Battersea is made famous by many things, but also for its Dogs and Cats Home. If you’re considering taking home a four-legged friend, then book onto one of their Meet the Dogs / Meet the Cats days.
Battersea has more than its fair share of trendy places to eat and drink and more seem to open every week. Try out any from the list below just for starters.
Control Room B in Battersea Power Station is a swanky cocktail bar featuring some of the original parts of the power station. Think industrial chic with impressive cocktails.
Enjoy a wander along the Thames path and nip into the brewery for a drink or two. Found in the Arches Lane area, you’ll be impressed by the number of beers on tap which you can enjoy seated among the brewery vats.
The Secret Garden is a fantastic hideaway with outdoor seating which can be enjoyed in all weathers. Enjoy the Bohemian atmosphere.
Grab a bunch of friends for a great night at Bunga Bunga complete with karaoke and a stairwell that is themed along the lines of the Sistine Chapel. It’s also a perfect place for a bottomless brunch of pizza and prosecco.
While being central, Battersea was once a bit tricky to reach by public transport. However, owing to its recent revitalisation, the Northern Line extension now reaches Battersea Power Station and Nine Elms. Battersea is in Zone 2. Clapham Common tube station is also close. Near to Battersea are Chelsea, South Lambeth, and Kennington. There are good connections at Clapham Junction and you can reach Gatwick Airport easily.
