One of the most defining features of the tight-knit community of up and comers and young families are the Northcote Road Market in Battersea, selling meat, cheese, fruits, vegetables, flowers, clothes, art, and antiques. Another great shopping destination is Lavender Hill that has unique and fashionably forward choices in art, clothes and home goods. The major department stores are Marks & Spencer and Debenhams, but if you’re looking for elaborate and fancy children’s clothing stores definitely don’t miss Northcote Road’s shopping district.
With over ten million in improvements in the Battersea area in the last ten years there has grown to be a number of great restaurants, bars, and pubs. So while we can recommend the current choices, the number of selections will increase ten-fold with the new high street. For good gathering and meeting spots within walking distance to the Imperial Wharf train, you can head to Battersea Square on the current high street between Westbridge Rd and Shuttleworth. Local spots in the area to eat are Mazar Restaurant, Woodman, Queenswood, and Zocalo.
If you are more on the Clapham Junction Station side than check out Suburb SW11 Bar & Dining; they feature a wicked good Moscow Mule and other favorite spirits during Happy Hour 6 days a week, and the tapas sampling is phenomenal. They feature everything from fondue to bottomless brunch on the weekends. Other area menus worth a look are The Schoolhouse and Palace Spice Battersea; yet a stroll up either Northcote Rode or Battersea Rise will show you why the area is so popular with the younger professionals. Bars and pubs spill over with people all summer long, and the nightlife in the area is renowned. For more subtle activities there is always a comedy show on the Battersea Barge, Recumbent rentals and the famed avant-garde Battersea Arts Centre. For things to do with the kids there is Battersea Park Cinemas; Go Ape Battersea; and the Battersea Children’s Zoo.
Actually Battersea has been famous for its rail yards and commuter trains for hundreds of years, with up to 2,000 trains a day passing through town. The Northern Line extension is planned which will add two additional tube stations in Battersea and Nine Elms. The railway is the hub of travel in Battersea and Clapham Junction can have you to Waterloo or Victoria in under 10 minutes. Daily multiple trains are available throughout London, Brighton, and other southern coastal areas.
The Overground will take you anywhere in West London, the Docklands, South London, East London, Islington, and Highbury. Trains you board in Battersea Park can have you to Victoria in 5 minutes, and the Queenstown Road trains will be only a 7-minute ride to Waterloo. The Bus network is extensive and for those of a higher budget, there’s even a heliport.
The Park by the same name, Battersea Park is one of the most active sports parks in London. The plethora of sports to choose from includes all weather pitches (fields for hockey and amateur football-soccer); boating; bowls; cricket; cycling; fishing; horseback riding; running; sports field; tennis; trim track; and walk for life trail. All weather pitches offer year-round tournament play and the surface was recently redone to maintain the best playing surface.
Battersea Park also offers art in the Pump House Gallery and Sculptures including the famous Brown Dog Statue and 8 other sculptures. The flora and fauna are worth exploring here and is a favorite of arborists and bird watchers, featuring its own aviary. The Gardens are spectacular with The Rosery, Thrive, Winter Garden, Russell Page Garden, Sub-Tropical Garden and the Old English Garden. Naturally, the most representative of the structures of the park is the Peace Pagoda, followed by the Cascades, various war memorials, and the Rustic Bridge. Battersea Park also offers various parades throughout the year, and the walk along the waterfront is a favorite of all park attendees.
