Battersea Power Station Open House

Painted chimneys Anthony Coleman VIEW Photography

Free, booking required!


Today, the Power Station is owned by Malaysian shareholders Sime Darby, S P Setia and the Employees’ Provident Fund. The site is being redeveloped as a mixture of homes, retail space and offices. The first phase of the development, Circus West to the west of the Power Station building, is now completing and hundreds of people have already moved in. Circus West Village already has lively shops, restaurants, bars and a Village Hall.

Restoration of the Power Station building is in full swing, with all four chimneys now replaced and work underway on new steelworks and roofs. In 2020, the Power Station building will open. Its office space will form the London campus of Apple, and it will also have homes, shops, restaurants and bars. There will be a new six-acre public park on the riverside. One of the chimneys will contain a lift and viewing platform offering visitors a magnificent view of London from the top.

Londoners and tourists are to get the chance of a backstage tour of the £9 billion redevelopment of Battersea Power Station via a ballot as the world-famous Grade II* listed building takes part in Open House London and opens its doors to the public on 17 September.
