Battersea Park railway station
The station remains effectively unmodernised since its construction in the Victorian era. It has an attractive polychrome brick Venetian Gothic facade. Access to the platforms is via steep wooden staircases, and (as of October 2003) it is 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.
With the redevelopment of Battersea Power Station, the railway station is due a complete refurbishment in 2006.
