Nice old bridge

This is a nice old bridge by Chelsea Embankment . It has a sign asking soldiers to break step when crossing presumable to stop the bridge from shaking.

If you're going Chelsea way then pay a visit to the Albert Bridge but only at night when it's all lit up. Stunning to look at and well worth walking along to the centre to view the Thames at night and to see the structure of the bridge. A quick and easy site to see but well worth it.

I hadn't walked or driven over this unusual historic Victorian bridge for some time so it was a pleasure to admire it 'up close and personal' again when sailing under it on a recent cruise to Kew from Westminster. It's especially beautiful when attractively illuminated at night. From its Southern end one can take a stroll through Battersea Park past... More

I've spotted the Albert Bridge from a distance, and decided on a recent trip to London to go and see it. It is best viewed at sunset and night time as it is illuminated. The nearest Tube Station is South Kensington and then a 30 minute walk from there.

This road bridge connects Chelsea and Battersea. Opened in 1873, it is a wonderfully ornate Victorian structure, the like of which you don't often see these days. Note the notice to troops on the gateposts at either end of the bridge. For the best view of the bridge, head down the steps at the Chelsea side or walk over to... More

Bridges are, among many other things, my passion. And this one is really great sight. It was designed in 1873 as a modified cable-stayed bridge, connecting Chelsea and Battersea. In 1973 two concrete piers were constructed and the resulting structure, mixing three different styles, is rather unusual but very effective.

The Albert bridge is a very good looking bridge, I personally think one of London's best and well worth seeing if you are in the area.

I love this bridge. It sums up everything wonderful about London. Fairy tale, solid, safe, and so beautiful. Walk over it at dusk on a summer evening or very early morning, you will be the only person on it and it will feel magical and mysterious. So many times I walk over it and there are films crews filming something... More
