It’s no wonder that more and more people are turning their heads to Battersea. With the US embassy moving south of the river, the regeneration of Battersea Power Station and the planned Northern Line extension, the area has a bright future. Battersea’s renaissance offers great investment opportunities, just minutes away from central London.

Going out

Battersea has plenty of bars, cafes and restaurants close to Clapham Junction, up St John’s Road, continuing on Northcote Road and along Lavender Hill. Visit Gordon Ramsay’s London House for the ultimate fine-dining experience, or pop into the Power Station Wine Bar for a tasty pint of pale ale. Visit the Northcote for a fun-filled evening, with activities such as board games or chocolate making. If you are a beer lover, you’ll also find an excellent selection at The Draft House.

 

Shopping

The beauty of Battersea is that you can buy new clothes, purchase a tasty homemade meal while getting your shoes repaired, all within the same area! The neighbourhood boasts dozens of quirky independent shops, especially around Northcote Road and Lavender Hill.
