Visit by public transport
This walking tour starts at Queenstown Road station and takes us through Battersea Park where we'll see plenty of interesting social history before we arrive at the magnificent Power Station. Derelict for decades, it has now been transformed into a spectacular multi-billion-pound commercial and residential centre with world-class architecture surrounding the four famous chimneys.
