Why

Most who visit London never head this far west as they just explore the London Bridge or the Tower Bridge for example. However, the Albert Bridge was built in 1873 and is older than Tower Bridge :-). it does not open, but serves as a connector between the Battersea and Chelsea communities. It’s worth a visit the next time you’re in town.
