What locals say about Battersea

  1. I love Battersea because of the beautiful park, it is well connected by bus to Chelsea and Clapham and it has character at the same time.

  2. I love SW11 because it's close to the centre of London, but has a real personality of its own. A very villagey yet urban feel.

  3. Battersea is close to Chelsea and Central London.

  4. Battersea is an area being redeveloped so much and the people are friendly. It's very suitable for young families, as well as young people who have just started their career in central London.

  5. Lots of parks, restaurants and friendly people.

About Battersea

Battersea is part of London on the south bank of the River Thames. Roughly triangular in shape, its northern boundary is the Thames, as it runs first north-east, and then east, before turning north again to pass Westminster. Its north eastern corner is one mile (1.6 km) due south of the Palace of Westminster; the north western corner is demarcated by Wandsworth Bridge and Battersea tapers south to a point roughly three miles (5 km) from the north eastern corner and two miles (3 km) from the north west. To the east is Lambeth; on the south are Camberwell and Streatham, on the south-east is Clapham and on the west Wandsworth. It was announced that a new US embassy would be constructed at Nine Elms. This development would also see the building of luxury apartments in the area.
