Be sure to visit the restaurants here in Circus West Village before or after the performances. Enjoy sourdough pizza at Mother, Italian dishes at Fiume, super seafood at Wright Brothers, Indian cuisine at Cinnamon Kitchen, Japanese food at Tonkotsu and small sharing plates at No.29 Power Station West. Pick up coffee and cake from The CoffeeWorks Project and be sure to make a stop at our wine bar and shop, Vagabond Wines.

Dropping the kids off at one of the workshops? Why not get a hair or beauty treatment at Paul Edmonds, go spinning at Boom Cycle or shop the aisles of The Battersea General Store. And don’t forget, the easiest way to get to and from Battersea Power Station is by river, on board MBNA Thames Clippers.
