Chelsea Bridge is absolutely stunning to see at night as you’re driving by in a black cab. Straddling the River Thames in West London, it connects Chelsea on the north bank to Battersea on the south bank.

Originally built as a toll bridge in 1857, Chelsea Bridge was painted bright red and white in the 70s prompting a number of complaints from Chelsea F.C. fans that Chelsea Bridge had been painted in Arsenal colours. In 2007, it was repainted in a less controversial red, blue and white colour scheme.

If you want to truly experience it, grab a bench along the Thames and soak it all in.
