As you exit Battersea Park heading toward the Power Station you can discover the ornate Chelsea bridge, marvellous design with golden ships on the lamps.

Needs maintainable

One of the few disappointing bridges. Looks better at night as it covers the poor paintwork and state of repairs. Don’t go unless you are close by.

Lovely old bridge, we were staying at Chelsea Wharf so walked across the bridge everyday, it needs some maintainance but is a fine early construction with an interesting history re it's connection to Battersea Park from London and also the hard to believe now illegal motor cycle races held there in the early 1970's. The redevelopment of the wharf area has some nice walks and shops, with bike hire close at hand. Also on wharf end of bridge is a little roadside caravan with really great takeaway

Best seen from the riverbank
May 2017 • Solo
The existing Chelsea Bridge was opened by the Prime Minister of Canada, Mackenzie King, in 1935. It's a sturdy iron structure and marks the eastern boundary of Battersea Park on its south side. Lister Hospital is the largest nearby building on the north side. To its east views along the river are slightly marred by its proximity to Grosvenor Bridge which carries the Southern railway over the Thames from Clapham Junction to Victoria station. Travelling south affords pleasant views of Battersea Park. But it's perhaps best appreciated from the riverbank at night, or from adjacent Albert or Battersea bridges to appreciate it fully illuminated. No surprise that this stretch of the river between Chelsea and Battersea Bridges is so beloved of film directors.

Beautifully illuminated at night

This is a suspension bridge across the River Thames linking Chelsea to Battersea. Best seen at night as it is beautifully illuminated.

Attractive both by day and when illuminated at night.
Sep 2016 • Couples
It was wonderful to sail under this lovely suspension bridge again on a recent cruise from Westminster to Kew.
Another good way to view it is from trains crossing the very close-by Grosvenor railway bridge, all of which arrive at or leave from Victoria Station.
This bridge linking Chelsea and Battersea was opened only in 1937 and replaced a previous one which was originally named Victoria Bridge.
At night it is brightly illuminated and is a spectacular sight.
