Battersea Park area.

Hi all,

Heading to London (from US) first week of January for 4 nights to meet up with 2 childhood girlfriends. We’ve identified a rental flat we love in Battersea Park area. Looks like Brynmaer Road near Albert Bridge Road? We understand it’s a good 15 minute walk to the tube but that there are cafés and such around (as well as buses and Uber, taxi etc.)

While we’d love to be a bit more central this place offers terrific accommodations for a great price as well as a lovely living area to hang out and catch up etc ( we all live far away from one another..2 of them haven't seen each other in 25 years) Hope to book tomorrow but would love to hear if there any significant reasons we should avoid the area!

Many thanks!

Yes, it's a very nice area, but has the host told you it's a 15 minute walk to the tube and to which tube station?

If you post a link to the property, that will enable better feedback. Many hosts/landlords are generous when they describe the location. Which tube station are your near? Likely there are a number of bus stops on the way.

I think you are probably closer to 20 minutes from the nearest tube station. Which one did they say?

Here is another one that you might want to consider.

“The Underground:

It’s a bit cheeky to put Battersea Park under the heading of Underground since it’s not a tube station at all.

Whether you’d rather stay somewhere more central and/or nearer to the underground is up to you and what you plan to do.

Personally, if I only had four nights in London, I’d be planning to be out and about for much of the time so convenience would trump the actual accommodation.

Thanks...will rethink I guess. It does look a bit far in looking at the tube map.

Also, I have no sense of distance ...is Slaone Square within walking distance of Battersea Park, and if so how long a walk? Tks again.

Yes, they've described an overground station as if it's a tube station, which is very cheeky.

It's not that bad, if you don't mind using buses instead of the tube and there are a ton of places to eat and drink around there. Many of the pubs have entertainment too and a better pub to eat in (which is also a very quirky local) is The Grove (handmade burgers and roasts on sundays). The Lighthouse is a little 'up itself' for my liking, although it does have nice drinking sheds in the garden. You've also got shopping at Clapham Junction, or Southside, in Wandsworth, which you could catch a quick bus to.

I wouldn't walk to Sloane Square, I'd take a bus, unless I had time to meander via battersea Park and the weather was nice.

If you're main aim is to catch up and eat out and you're not too bothered about sight-seeing everyday, then go for it.

If it's very cheap and you have some spare cash, you could cab it into the center.
