Battersea power station has launched The Winter Village.
Including the Circus West Village, the first chapter in the regeneration of the power station and The Coaling Jetty, an historic Grade II-listed jetty, which opened to the public for the first time in August, The Winter Village at Battersea power station will be a place to eat, drink and be merry this Christmas.
Transformed with Christmas trees and festive lighting, The Coaling Jetty will host a selection of food and drink pop-ups serving festive inspired specials and cosy alpine wooden huts to snuggle up in and enjoy the stunning river views.
Carlin Fier from the Battersea Power Station Development Company, said: “Following the success of the summer garden party on The Coaling Jetty in August, we are excited to be creating a new festive destination for Londoners and visitors from further afield.
“With its prominent position on the River Thames, The Coaling Jetty provides a unique setting to launch the first Winter Village at Battersea power station and will complement the strong Christmas offering from the great mix of bars, restaurants and shops already open.”
The Winter Village will be home to London’s only riverside curling lanes. Simple yet addictive and lots of fun, why not challenge your friends and family to this game of ‘chess on ice’.
Kids will also be able to try their hand at ice skating with the help of some friendly penguin aids on a synthetic ice rink with stunning river views.
Battersea power station’s weekly river walk market will be getting into the festive spirit with Christmas favourites including artisan Panettone and mince pies from the Flour Station, mulled wine and spiced cider from A Glass of Joy and seasonal cheese such as Mont d’Or, Comté, Oude Beemster Gouda and Tome Fort St. Antone from Borough Cheese.
