Explore the first chapter of Battersea Power Station’s Regeneration
Circus West Village, the first phase in the redevelopment of the iconic Battersea Power Station and one of London’s most exciting food and drink destinations is now open and only a short walk from Battersea Park.
Head over to this vibrant riverside neighbourhood in Nine Elms before or after the fireworks to enjoy the many independent and design-led bars, restaurants and shops that call it home. From delicious Italian dishes at Fiume, where Francesco Mazzei is Chef Patron, to warming modern Indian cuisine at Cinnamon Kitchen and brilliant British seafood at Wright Brothers. If you are coming with children enjoy a super sourdough pizza at Mother or for those on a date it’s got to be Megan’s, which was recently voted one of South London’s most romantic restaurants, followed by a film at Archlight cinema.
Watching fireworks can be thirsty work. Enjoy locally brewed craft beers and homemade toasties at Battersea Brewery or warm up with rich reds and crisp whites at Vagabond, one of the UK’s first urban wineries. Book now to enjoy dinner and drinks with friends and family before or after the show.

About Battersea Power Station
Battersea Power Station is one of central London’s largest, most visionary and eagerly anticipated new town centres in which roughly half the development will consist of shops, restaurants and office space. In addition, there will be a six-acre public park, a town square and a new tube station (scheduled to be within Zone 1).
The Battersea Power Station project covers 42 acres and includes 3.5m sq ft of mixed commercial space, together with 4,239 new homes.
The successful regeneration of Battersea Power Station will create 20,000 new jobs, inject £20bn into the UK economy and create a funding mechanism for the first major tube line extension since the Millennium. A new NHS medical facility is also being built.
The Battersea Academy for Skills & Employment (BASE), the development company’s bespoke jobs and training service created for those living locally, was launched in 2016. It is focused on matching people with jobs at Battersea as well as providing training relevant to the job pipeline at the development.
The wider Battersea Power Station development is owned by a consortium of Malaysian investors comprised of S P Setia (40%), Sime Darby Property (40%) and The Employees’ Provident Fund (20%), with the commercial assets within the Power Station building now being directly owned by Permodalan Nasional Berhad (PNB) and EPF.
Management of the development is being undertaken by the British-based Battersea Power Station Development Company.
Huge progress continues to be made on the restoration of the Power Station which is due to open to the public in 2021, with the third phase of the project, Electric Boulevard also well underway.
