A district of London found at the Southbank of the River Thames, Battersea has a storied history, and one which has made it unlike anywhere else. It has kept a piece of every part of its past, which gives the area its distinctive charms.
Starting off as a largely agricultural part of the capital before the Industrial Revolution, this can be seen today in the gorgeous 200 acres of stunning green land at Battersea Park, which is also one of the area’s most admired attractions. This love of nature also extends elsewhere, including the world-famous Battersea Dogs and Cats Home, which you can visit for a small fee to help keep their good work going. This period, where Battersea’s economy was largely made up of growing food, can also be appreciated through a modern lens in its many fine restaurants.
Next, Battersea moved into the industrial age, which is reflected not only in the architecture of the area but also in its modern conveniences and distinct sense of creativity and inventiveness. Later into this period came the railways and considering that today Battersea offers Europe’s busiest railway station, it’s fair to say that legacy has lived on too. All these things and many more bring us to the modern day and everything which makes Battersea such a great, interesting, varied and fun place to live.
