A Christmas tree, giant mistletoe, pop-ups to buy your presents, fantastic new restaurants and a perfect spot to take ‘elfies’ make Battersea Power Station the place to visit this Christmas.
Battersea Power Station will kick off its Christmas festivities on Thursday 30th November, when thousands of lights along the new riverwalk, as well as a large Christmas tree and the iconic Chimneys, will be switched on at 7pm. The moment marks the start of a month-long series of fun and festive activities taking place at Circus West Village in the run up to Christmas.
Highlights of the festivities include:
In addition, visitors will also be able to explore the new restaurants that have opened at Battersea Power Station. These include Mother, a pizza restaurant from Copenhagen, No. 29 Power Station West, the village pub, Fiume, an Italian restaurant with chef Francesco Mazzei and from 11th December, seafood restaurant Wright Brothers. The Battersea General Store will also be stocking the very best festive goodies while Ben’s Canteen, known for its burgers and Bloody Marys, will open a pop-up beside the river with covered seating and outside heaters.
The Battersea Power Station Community Choir will be singing and, every Thursday until Christmas, a quartet of professional singers will provide the entertainment with timeless classic carols and well-known Christmas songs.
The new MBNA Thames Clippers River Bus service, supported by a state-of-the-art pier created at the foot of the iconic Power Station, started on 1st November bringing Circus West Village within 15 minutes of the West End and 40 minutes of Canary Wharf and marks a significant extension to River Bus services on the River Thames.
