Discover the first chapter of Battersea Power Stations regeneration which is fast becoming London’s most exciting riverside neighbourhood.

On the banks of the River Thames, you’ll find an exciting mix of independent and design-led restaurants, bars, shops and things to do – all bursting with character.

Sample cuisine from around the world including: modern Indian food at Vivek Singh’s Cinnamon Kitchen, rustic Italian recipes at Francesco Mazzei’s Fiume, British seafood at Wright Brothers, Spanish tapas at Brindisa and bottomless pizza at Gordon Ramsay’s new Battersea restaurant, Street Pizza. Home-made noodles and authentic Japanese bone broth ramen are on the menu at Tonkotsu, while dog-friendly Megan’s specialises in Mediterranean inspired dishes served all day in an insta-worthy setting.

We’re extremely excited about the boutique Archlight Cinema, which shows a carefully curated selection of films in an intimate setting, and the newly opened DNA VR with over 50 virtual games to try.

Other local gems include Moyses Stevens, London’s oldest and most prestigious florist, VIP celebrity hair and beauty salon Paul Edmonds and experts in dentistry, White & Co.

Battersea Power Station is also home to the ultimate party-on-a-bike spin studio Boom Cycle and outdoor fitness experts Be Military Fit.

When the sun goes down, head to No.29 Power Station West and discover their extensive cocktail list, Battersea Brewery, which has its own microbrewery tucked under the arches, or Vagabond to sample over one hundred wines by the glass.

At Battersea Power Station, you’ll find a community brought together not only by the good things in life, but also by a packed schedule of art and events from food festivals, live music, exhibitions, workshops and more.

There’s no better way to spend the day than exploring public spaces in the sun, picking up a paper from The Battersea General Store before popping into Black Sheep Coffee for one of the best cups of coffee in London (or an espresso martini at night).
