You may be forgiven for thinking of Battersea as that in between nowhere area with the only famous landmarks being 'Battersea Power Station' and 'Battersea Dogs Home'. Due to being the site for the graves of Plague victims many centuries ago, the Victorians gave the Battersea area a wide birth when building the underground. This has left the area a tad difficult to reach, but those living there don't mind, they get to keep all those great pubs & restaurants around Battersea to themselves!
