Battersea Power Station has revealed a new interactive CGI image of its unique Chimney Lift experience.

The 360° panoramic images show the view from inside the lift when it reaches the top of the Grade II* listed building’s North West chimney at 109 metres.

The attraction will be operated by global events and entertainment leader IMG when the Power Station opens to the public next year.

Set to become one of the most unique viewing platforms in London, the bespoke glass Chimney Lift can hold around 30 visitors and be available to the public and for private events.

The visitor experience will begin in Turbine Hall A with an immersive exhibition celebrating the Power Station’s history, before venturing into the Chimney Lift.

Sam Cotton, Head of Leasing at Battersea Power Station Development Company commented: “We are excited to be able to give future visitors a preview of the breathtaking views they will be able to enjoy from our unique Chimney Lift. We are creating a new destination in London, which will offer visitors an experience like no other, and partnering with leading global events and entertainment giants IMG to operate the Chimney Lift is sure to guarantee this.

“This year is going to be the most exciting yet in the transformation of Battersea Power Station with our first residents moving into their homes this Spring, the Northern Line Extension opening in the Autumn and our retailer and office occupiers starting to fit out their spaces ahead of opening the Power Station’s doors to the public next year. The first ride in the Chimney Lift will be an extremely special moment for everyone involved in the project and one we’re all looking forward to.”

Stephen Flint Wood, EVP and Managing Director of Arts & Entertainment Events at IMG said: “We are proud to be working with Battersea Power Station on this prestigious project and utilising our expertise in operating major attractions and events to bring London’s newest attraction to life. The Chimney Lift will provide year-round entertainment, with visual and experiential elements for visitors from across all of London, the UK and around the world to enjoy. We look forward to welcoming them when it opens next year.”
