Battersea Power Station: Walking in Whistler’s footsteps and Thames sculpture (Artist-led curated walks)

Chimneys Charlie Turner



Join artist Luke Walker as he explores the history of the area, involving an exchange of stories, cultures and histories recorded in the urban fabric of the city by walking its paths and streets. The walk will trace the history of the artist JM Whistler in the context of Battersea’s landscapes, green spaces, and the Thames, while discussing how the river and the painter have inspired artists. You will cross over the river and briefly seek out the artist’s former homes before visiting the sites of some of his most famous paintings, before following the south bank back into Battersea Park for a short art and sculpture trail.

Meeting point: Circus West Village, Grosvenor Arch, London SW8 4NU

The best way to get there is on foot. If you head to Chelsea Bridge and go down to the river path, keep the river on your left hand side and you’ll walk straight up to the entrance of Grosvenor Bridge and Circus West Village.
