Crossing the River Thames between Chelsea and Battersea, Albert Bridge is a stunning example of Victorian bridge architecture. It is not on most visitors’ itineraries but well worth a visit for architecture enthusiasts.

Named in memory of Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, Prince Consort to Queen Victoria, the attractive Albert Bridge was built between 1870 and 1872. Designed by Rowland Mason Ordish, it was an excellent example of a rigid suspension bridge. It measures 216 meters long, 12.5 meters wide (700 ft by 41 ft) and has a centre span of 122 meters (400 feet).

The bridge is elegantly lit after sundown and is a photographic must for avid picture-takers.  I think all bridges are the best places to photograph London.  Each bridge is unique in style and the River Thames is the true heart of the city.
