Battersea Park - FURTHER INFORMATION

Battersea Park - London visitor guide showing a virtual tour of 'Battersea Park' linked to an interactive map with local and travel information. 360° panoramas from Greater London.

Battersea Park lies on the south bank of the River Thames in London. The northern edge is bounded by a riverside promenade which runs between Albert Bridge and Chelsea Bridge. It was built between 1854 and 1870 on 200 acres of marshland and market garden that provided food for London. In recent years much of the park has undergone extensive renovation with the aid of the Lottery Heritage Fund, installing some of the features from the Festival Gardens built for the 1951 Festival of Britain exhibition.

Battersea Park has many things to offer visitors and is popular with both locals and tourists alike. It is a great place to escape from the crowds of London, find a quiet place to rest and relax. Among the highlights of Battersea park are:

Every year on Guy Fawkes Night, Battersea Park holds one of the biggest firework displays in London. At that time the park is very crowded. For more information about the park and events visit the Friends of Battersea Park website.
