Battersea Power Station

Battersea Power Station makes a striking figure on the London skyline. Designed in part by Giles Gilbert Scott, it's one of London's best-known landmarks, despite being decommissioned as a power station in the 1980s. It famously appeared on the front cover of a Pink Floyd album, and was also used as a location in The King's Speech.
