Battersea Station’s Glass Elevator to Open Next Year
A glass elevator that will run up the inside of one of Battersea Power Station’s chimneys in London before popping up out of the top for a view will open next year, Ian Visits reported on April 1. Traveling 109 m up the interior to the top of the North West chimney, the newly branded “Chimney Lift” will hold around 30 visitors and be available to the public as well as for private events. The plans are that visitors will arrive in Turbine Hall A for an exhibition about the Power Station’s history before venturing into the lift. Neither the exact opening date nor access prices are being revealed. The northern line extension to the power station remains on target to open later this year. The chimney lift was originally announced in 2018.
