Location Point

Albert Bridge
London

Albert Bridge, named after Queen Victoria's husband, was fully opened in 1873; alongside Battersea Bridge it was originally a toll bridge, but became free once purchased by the Metropolitan Board of Works in 1878. The bridge was almost removed after the Second World War but was saved for conservation. However, in spite of strengthening in the 1880s and 1970s, the bridge is still quite weak and there are weight restrictions permanently in place.

How to get here:

Underground (District/Circle): Sloane Square - Exit the station and then head along King's Road into Chelsea. Once you pass the cinema you'll be approaching Oakley Street on the left - turn into this and walk down to the Chelsea Embankment and Albert Bridge. +

»
