Battersea Park railway station

Battersea Park is a suburban railway station in the London Borough of Wandsworth. It is by Battersea Park itself, and is not far from Battersea Power Station.

It is between Victoria and Clapham Junction . Services are operated by South Central Trains.

The station remains effectively unmodernised since its construction in the Victorian period. It has an attractive polychrome brick Venetian Gothic facade. Access to the platforms is via steep wooden staircases and [as at October 2003] it it unusable by infirm or physically disabled travellers.

Although there is CCTV security, the station is unstaffed for much of the day, and there are several blind corners. Those travelling alone may therefore prefer to use bus services after dark.
