When you enter Battersea Park,
you are transported instantly to another era.
The park itself is a glorious mix & match
of various styles and peculiar features,
that surprise the eye and the mind.
I like to call it the Alice in Wonderland park.
|Battersea Park's "Tea Terrace"|
Battersea Park is full of surprises.
There is a soviet-style "tea terrace" as they call it,
an enormous buddhist pagoda next to the river
and a subtropical garden (the perfect spot for a picnic).
The Time Capsule
From the 60s cafeteria which, to be honest,
could do with some refurbishment,
to the very belle epoque bandstand
you don't need more for a trip to the past.

There are plenty of fun things to do in Battersea Park:
rent a boat in the summer,
go to the zoo (it's small but affordable),
play cricket, if that's your thing,
or have lunch by the lake at the 60s cafeteria.
Battersea Power Station's iconic white chimneys
overlook the park
while the river brings a cool breeze
on a hot summer day...
...on a wonderful, magically surprising day
in Battersea Park.
