Travel & Parking

Shuttle Bus from Sloane Square

We will be running a daily free shuttle service between Sloane Square and Battersea Evolution, departing at regular intervals from outside the Sloane Square Hotel, 7–12 Sloane Square, London, SW1W 8EG. We anticipate the bus will take approximately 10 minutes from Sloane Square to arrive at the venue, but this, of course, will depend on the traffic.

The Battersea Power Station Shuttle Bus is a free shuttle bus available to all residents, employees, contractors and visitors to the estate, operated by Green Urban Transport Limited (GoGutsi). The service operates every 20 minutes, departing on the hour, 20 minutes past the hour and 40 minutes past the hour from Circus West. It follows a circular loop from Circus West stopping at Vauxhall, Pimlico, Victoria and Sloane Square before returning to Circus West.

The nearest stop to the fair is Battersea Park Chelsea Gate.

Take to the River and Arrive in Style

The River Bus is a fun and fast way to get to the fair from Central London; Battersea Power Station Pier is only 20 minutes from Embankment Pier and 34 minutes from Tower Pier.

The Local Area

Battersea is one of the most exciting and innovative mixed use neighbourhoods in the world – a place for locals, tourists and residents to enjoy a unique blend of restaurants, shops, parks and cultural spaces.

Battersea Power Station is a Grade II listed building that has been renovated as the centre of a thriving social hub. Its vibrant mix of independent and design-led restaurants, bars, shops and brand new cinema is just a short walk away from Firsts London.

This exciting riverside destination is the perfect place to make a day of your trip to the Fair. Enjoy a delicious Mediterranean brunch at Megan’s, simple Italian soul food at Mother, indulge in a long lunch on Fiume’s sunny terrace, tuck into a fresh seafood platter at Wright Brothers or unwind with a beer brewed on site at Battersea Brewery.

The entrance to Battersea Power Station is across the road from Battersea Park’s Chelsea Gate. Simply head down to river level and look out for the colourful POWER sign.
