Guided Tour of Battersea Power Station

Guided Tour of Battersea Power Station

Tue 23 Apr, all day.

This is a morning walking tour of Battersea Power Station led by Ian Swankie and hosted by The Arts Society Chiswick.

On this walk, see the glitzy new apartment blocks built by well-known architects including Norman Foster and Frank Gehry, then explore the power station building inside and out. Its a triumph of redevelopment combining new retail, commercial and residential spaces, while maintaining many elements of the industrial heritage.

You’ll hear about the construction of the original power station between 1929 to 1955, its importance for London, its decommissioning, dereliction, and recent multi-billion-pound rebirth. At the end of the walk those who wish to see the view from the top can book to ascend one of the chimneys in lift 109 after the tour.
