A main feature of Battersea is the 200 acre green space of Battersea Park, situated on the bank of the Thames. The park offers activities such as mini golf, a petting zoo and Go Ape, as well as an array of sport and recreational facilities. Just to the east of the park is Battersea Power Station, formerly a coal-fired power station, it has now been redeveloped into a 'mixed-use destination' comprised of luxury penthouses and apartments, hotel accommodation, office space, shops, restaurants, bars and event space. To the west, on the other side of Battersea Park, is the Albert Bridge, connecting Battersea to Chelsea in under a five minute walk. Illuminated at night by 4,000 bulbs, the bridge is a striking piece of London architecture. Continuing further west you'll find a delightful pocket of restaurants, cafés, shops and bars which make up the vibrant Battersea Square.
