Battersea Power Station Open Day

This will be the first and the last opportunity to see one of London's most iconic buildings before it undergoes a vibrant redevelopment across the full 38 acre site.

We should get access to the new power station park and the area inside the turbine hall with viewing platform.

We'll cap the afternoon off with a visit to the pub, as is the custom.

How to find us:

o  meet outside Sloane Square tube at 1pm

o  I'll have a black backpack with me if that helps find us

If you have difficulty finding us, call Trevor on[masked] (if you text, don't forget to leave your name).

See you there!

Trevor.

Updates:

If you are coming from the south you may meet us on the south east side of Chelsea Bridge at 1-25 pm (and wait a few minutes for us to arrive).

The event is not ticketed, although there may be a queue to get in.

    Looks like the open day has become a victim of its own success.
    We may have to settle for photographing the outside and the queues -
    in which case we will throw in Battersea Park to boot.
    Feel free to cancel/not turn up if this is not your bag.

    A great idea, but the queue was too much - so I'll pass on this one. I hope that there will be demand for another open day for this site.

    It was a great idea Trevor, but sadly they didn't anticipate how popular the "OpenHouse" would be. They should have had this running longer than just the 2 days. Sorry, but I am going to give this one a miss. Enjoy the afternoon whatever you do.

    Here at 11, staff telling everyone 5 hr wait, massive queue!!

    Hi Trevor, I was queuing for 3 hours to get in to Battersea Power Station yesterday, and it was totally worth it! However, they were turning people away and we just about got in. It's likely to be even worse today. Good luck, but if you're not in the queue now, you probably won't get in...

    September 22, 2013

  • Sylvie

    I am going earlier too.

    September 22, 2013

  • Michael

    This is my first time with your group. Looking forward to meet you.

    I think I'll go earlier as well. Hope I see some of you there. Thanks for organizing this Trevor.

    I am going to go earlier and hopefully avoid some of the queues. I think it would be a shame not to get inside!

    I regret I am unable to make this event now, I hope all those attending enjoy the shoot, and can cope with the very long wait to get in.

    I hope to join you on a future photo shoot. Maybe another Natural History Museum?

    so what are the odds that loads of people hear about the queues and don't go... not as long to queue???

    Sorry I couldn't do it. I've been following this open house day through twitter & could not believe on the queue time of more than 3 hours + quite disorganised. Good luck to the others!

      hi there, a friend of mine walked past battersea power station and mentioned that the queue to get in is incredibly long. he reckons it'd take a really long time to get in. might I suggest we moved the Meetup to a few hours earlier in the day? Alex

      I have a friend who pointed out the same thing!! Maybe people should just start queuing and try and find each other inside (hmmm doubt that would work really)

    Sorry, will have to give it a miss due to the expected crowds.

    I've done a little more research and if past LDW events are anything to go by I'd say there's going to be a long queue... Unfortunately due to other commitments I'm going to have to miss it. I doubt I'd be done in time esp. if there is a wait. Enjoy, and please post your pics though! Look forward to the next one...

    Sorry I can't make it Trevor. Would have LOVED this one but I'm meeting an old friend on Sun. Will definitely try and make it to next one.

  • Amanda M.

    I plan to come but have to be in North London by 3 so wouldn't mind getting started a bit earlier... as Bianca asked do we need to register or could I meet you guys in there?
    Thanks... I'd hate to miss out :)

    September 17, 2013

  • bianca

    do we need to register with the location to get in or is it unticketed? I might go straight to venue as well as I am travelling from East Dulwich.

    A black backpack as a distinguishing feature? You might be one of many. :-))

    can I just ask why Sloane Square Tube station? ie: photo opportunities of Battersea Power Station on the way? I'm just checking as I live near Brixton so will probably just walk there via the south side of the river.

  • Steve L.

    Sounds amazing! Great idea

    September 16, 2013
