This Victorian Bridge was once scheduled for replacement, but following public outcry was retained, although with a weight limit restricting traffic which is all to the good. Painted now in pastel shades, it makes for an attractive sight viewed from the nearby gardens.

A great bridge across the Thames that is best viewed at night from the river. Built in the 1870 it was a marvel of the time. A great suspension Bridge, but not really big enough for todays traffic.

This is Londons most romantic bridge at night, it's incredibly attractive. Walk along the riverbank, through Battersea park and stop for a pint at the Prince Albert.

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.
