Originally farmland – growing mostly lavender - before the Industrial Revolution, Battersea has since emerged as some of the hippest places in London, especially among professionals, due to its burgeoning art and culture scene, picturesque neighbourhoods, quirky cafes, and great community spirit. It’s also cheekily known as ‘Nappy Valley’ due to the number of young families that choose to make a home in Battersea.

What's nearby Battersea?
Explore your hipster side at Battersea Power Station
Famously featured on the cover of Pink Floyd’s Animals album, the Art Deco landmark Battersea Power Station is a decommissioned coal-fired power station that now offers an array of music, food and entertainment options, including fringe theatre. It will soon be home to a huge Apple headquarters, which is likely to make this area even more commercially and culturally significant in the days to come. If you visit, make sure to swing by Battersea Brewery next door.
Indulge your creativity at Battersea Arts Center
A arts and culture venue doubling as a community centre for Battersea residents, Battersea Arts Center offers everything from beatboxing courses to family-friendly crafting afternoons to iconic theatre productions of Edgar Allen Poe short stories (‘The Masque of the Red Death’) and opera. They also host the popular Battersea Beer Festival every February, attracting visits from all across London.
