What to do in Battersea

If we were to move further into London I’d love to live in the area of Battersea. It has lots of green areas, it’s close to the River Thames and it offers a lot to families. With new builds like the redesign of Battersea Power Station you have the option of modern luxury living within an historic setting.

We often visit this great area of London so I’ve put together a little guide to some of our favourite places to eat and attractions to visit, especially with children.



On the corner of Park Gate Road and Albert Bridge Road you’ll find the charming Prince Albert Gastro Pub situated just opposite Battersea Park. It’s an ideal place for a delicious lunch or dinner with a warm and bustling atmosphere. You have the choice of both indoor and outdoor dining with a large beer garden at the back.

The pub serves excellent food and has a vast selection of real ales on tap. It’s dog and child friendly so perfect for a family Sunday lunch. It also houses London’s largest backgammon club playing on Mondays and Saturdays.

After lunch head to the park across the road. This green oasis is home to many events throughout the year. You’ll also find playgrounds and a children’s zoo there.

We recently visited the Formula E race and had a great time with Caspian. There were lots of entertainment for the kids from bubble artists, to fairground rides and ice cream trucks. Caspian was not happy with being too young to try the miniature racing cars though.

If you want an evening out sans les enfants I suggest heading to Gordon Ramsey’s restaurant, London House, on Battersea Square. Enjoy a romantic gourmand dinner or meet up with friends for their Wine Wednesdays.

  1. I used to live in Battersea and I still absolutely love it. I love Battersea Park Children’s zoo in the centre of the park, and Battersea Park is quite the best park in London. There is a fantastic Argentinian steak house called Santa Maria del Sur. Not great for kids, but definitely worth getting a babysitter for. Pen x #KCACOLS

  2. I love battersea! I grew up in Clapham and the whole area has so many lovely things to do. The redevelopment of Battersea Power Station is really exciting, I’d love to visit and see what they’ve done with it as there was always talk of it being redeveloped when I was growing up, but it never happened until we moved out of the area. Great reason to pop back for a visit 🙂 Emily #KCACOLS

  3. Ohhh looks like a lovely place wih lots to do and see. Unfortunately we’re quite a way a way so very rarely get to visit places in London. Hopefully we will when the children are a bit older. Thanks so much for linking up at #KCACOLS. Hope you come back again next Sunday

  4. Battersea is a great part of London, central yet enough space in the parks to feel like you can breath. What fun in the parks at the moment, it makes it look a very family friendly area. #KCACOLS
