"Battersea is a beautiful, leafy suburban area - in the heart of London. Residential streets with a diverse community - great local shops and boutiques, and minutes from either Waterloo or Clapham Junction. Further, the park!!! Peaceful walks across the park, wildlife flourishing and loads to do with friends and family. It is a great place to start to live and appreciate London life!"

  1. About Battersea Park

    Battersea Park is an 200 acre (83-hectare) green space at Battersea in the London Borough of Wandsworth. It is situated on the south bank of the River Thames opposite Chelsea, and was opened in 1858. The park occupies a mix of marshland reclaimed from the Thames, and land formerly used for market gardens that served the London population. The park is home to a small children's zoo, a boating lake, a bandstand, and several all-weather outdoor sporting facilities including tennis courts, a running track and football pitches. The park is also the site of the London Peace Pagoda, erected in 1985.
