What’s Best about moving to Battersea

Battersea is a real up and coming place for those wanting to be close to the centre of London. Being a mere stone’s throw away across the Thames, Battersea is set to become even more popular in the near future with the imminent arrival of a direct tube station link with the City via the Northern Line.

Situated on the south bank of the mighty river Thames, Battersea is conveniently close to Chelsea and Fullham. Many people chose to settle in Battersea once house prices started to rise in London and a lot of people were priced out of the market in other areas. Battersea never quite had the prestige or the gravitas of other areas of London, and even Clapham Junction was so named by railway management because they didn’t want to name it after the area, despite the station actually being in Battersea.

The area has become popular for families because of it’s affordable house prices as well as reasonable rent levels when compared to other parts of London. There is also a lot of stunning and stylish architecture to be found amongst the Victorian streets. There are also pretty parks and good schools that make the place even more desirable for family life. There is still a close-knit, village community feel about the place that is very attractive.

Despite the affordability of living here, many people are now realising that Battersea is set to become the next ‘desirable London hotspot’ with developers converting Battersea Power Station into luxury flats and the new tube connection making the place more accessible to the City.
