The Space To Be
Battersea Park

For a perfect Sunday afternoon-into-evening jaunt head to Battersea Park for a lovely wander with views along the river. With a boating lake, tennis courts, wildlife ponds and a perfect picnic spot at the Peace Pagoda the 200-acre park was designed by the Victorian engineer James Pennehorne as a recreational area for the vast migration of people to London during the Industrial Revolution. The park was opened by Queen Victoria in 1858 with part of it being developed to create the Pleasure Gardens for the Festival Of Britain in 1951. After enjoying a good long breath of fresh air head off to nearby Prince Albert pub nearby for refreshing glass and some honey & mustard chipolatas of a beer-battered cod at the end of the day
