Battersea is a large district in south London, part of the London Borough of Wandsworth. It is centred 5.6 km southwest of Charing Cross and extends along the south bank of the River Thames.

Rapidly developing Battersea centres on its namesake park, home to fountains, a boating lake, and a Japanese-style Peace Pagoda overlooking the River Thames. The retired, art deco Battersea Power Station, with 4 towering chimneys, dominates the skyline and is now a new vibrant and friendly community neighbourhood. Battersea Arts Centre, in the 1890s town hall, presents comedy, music, and drama, and New Covent Garden is a huge wholesale market that sells flowers and produce,

Battersea is also the home of various fantastic local markets where you can go to pick up fresh food and buy other goods.
