Exploring Battersea Power Station with Palladium

The public aren't allowed inside, so Palladium made a film to give you a glimpse into a part of London history.

Since Battersea Power Station was closed in 1975, there have been various ideas banded around for what the desolate industrial space could be turned into. The theme park and football stadium proposals were kind of exciting, the luxury flats and shopping centre less so – unless, of course, you were the developer planning on charging tenants the Koch brothers' monthly wage for living a 30 second walk from both a Nandos and a bit of dirty water. In which case, I'll bet the anticipation was bone-shattering.


However, what nobody's really been able to do in that time is go and nose around inside, which is a shame because it's essentially 40 years of untouched London history going to waste, despite the fact that it would be easily within reach if people weren't so concerned with unimportant things like health and safety and girders collapsing and crushing anyone underneath them. Luckily for you, Palladium Boots took singer Eliza Doolittle to explore the power station and filmed a tour of the whole thing for their short film,
