Address Battersea Power Station 188 Kirtling St, Nine Elms, London SW8 5BN, UK

Imposing and in its own way majestic, the Battersea Power Station holds a special place in the London skyline. This former coal-fired power station is a favorite of musicians, filmmakers and artists from all cultural fields.

When it came into operation in 1933, Battersea Power Station was one of the first major coal-fired power stations in England. Located on the south bank of the Thames, it stopped production for good in 1983. Since then, it has appeared in films such as Children of Men and Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang, but also in series such as Doctor Who.

Today, the premises are open to the public and hosts the Apple campus, stores, restaurants, a panoramic view from one of the old chimneys and luxurious apartments.
