After my second friend in a week in an unconnected conversation mentioned her favourite bridge I realised that I don't have a favourite bridge in London, and that I needed to rectify this as a matter of urgency. I have decided to set it as one of my New Years resolutions, giving me a bit of time to make sure I have suitably considered all of the options. I will let you into a secret though, Albert bridge is very far in the lead. For all of the reasons that other reviewers have mentioned and more, I love this bridge. In fact when I thought about bridges in London this one was the only one that came to mind. Anytime I cross the river I try to take note of how beautiful London is, and how lucky I am to live here and this bridge adds to Londons beauty and always makes me feel happy- and it also provides a means with which to cross water without getting wet- what more can one ask of a bridge???
Awesome bridge but please ladies and gentlemen if you are driving across it you vehicle will fit through the width restrictions if it's a normal vehicle and that does include Chelsea tractors. The queue of snails crawling through at times makes me wonder how people passed their tests.
I agree with the review. it is a wonderful bridge. I believe it says Marching troops must break step when crossing this bridge on a sign.
When I was 17, after a lot of beer, I climbed up and tried to walk along the top. I fell in the Thames. The bus wouldn't let me on dripping wet and I had to walk home. If the tide had been out I would not be writing this :0)))
Now, waterloo bridge is the best bridge in London to look FROM, without a doubt, but Albert bridge is the best to look at once it is dark It is the princess of London bridges and is covered in hundreds of little lights. Don't try to cross it if you have a large car - there are bollards and you might find a tight squeeze!! But do go and take a look. There is something very london about it. Beautiful, romantic.
If I have been away from London, I see Albert Bridge lit up and I know I'm home.
Best and prettiest bridge in London,
and it's pink!
I'm not sure how you can review a bridge - it connects two sides of a river, but no bridge has the right to look this pretty and gorgeous by simply having lightbulbs strewn across it. But a gorgeous sight it is, and it should be on every tourist's list
A beautiful bridge to behold, especially at dusk when the light is at its' best for photography. If you move pretty quickly you can catch the fading light looking East. If you swing round you will capture remaing light, facing West. The Bridge lights become more pronounced as the natural light fades. Fabulous!!
It's been said before but this bridge is increidble. Whimsical and beautiful, sprinkled with twinkly lights, it comes alive at night. It is just magical and makes me happy to live in London.
Its just a beautiful bridge at night. Simple
this is my favorite bridge ok you may think so what its only a brigde right !! well it makes a spectaciuar view when lite up 100's of lightbulbs are displayed all over it ..in the 1980's there used to be a thing called the crurse where cars and bikes and i mean really big trucks like bigfoot would circle around the bridge it was an awesome show
One of , if not my very favourite of the bridges of London and I love them all . It looks especially beautiful at night when its all light up . Of course this is entirely subjective , but I think Albert Bridge is more romantic than any of the bridges of Venice . If you decide to come and see it do yourself a favour and listen to the Pouges doing Misty Morning Albert Bridge first . The smoky music provides the perfect soundtrack .
