“It's an icon (or so we're told!)”
Reviewed February 13, 2013

I was lucky enough to get inside and it is fantastic. People have complained that you can't really explore it because of health and safety but, as the site is not "safe", then it seems ridiculous to moan about it. I was genuinely pleased to have the opportunity to get inside such an impressive building.

“Battersea Power Station - Shine Charity Walk - Sep 2012”
Reviewed December 25, 2012

Well worth a visit! Awesome building! I was lucky to see it! It was the start and finish of SHINE charity walk that took place Sep 2012. There was approx 10,000 of us and the Power station was beautiful.

“Relentless Freeze festival 2012”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

We visited for a snow boarding festival held at the power station. It was a good day, live snow boarding and skiing comps being held across the day. Live dj's and bands on. Not over priced like normal festivals.

“Atmospheric”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

Such a great location here at the relentless freeze festival and the power station fits right in. Would definitely attend another event here shame you can't get a closer look. Worth a visit before the iconic building is gone

“Great Building”
Reviewed August 4, 2012

I went here while watching the Red Bull X-Fighters and the use of the powerstation was brilliant. Its a great iconic building and is a shame you cant visit it properly.
