On a recent visit to London we decided to walk from Waterloo to our Hotel in Victoria. This involved crossing Vauxhall Bridge.
We visit London a fair amount, but had never really walked this way. Usually, if walking we walk towards Southbank & beyond.
I must say though that the walk to & across Vauxhall were very pleasant & much quieter
Views not as impressive,but most definitely worth a stroll this way & will do so again.

This is a special place to go walkies: taking a walk across the bridge to meander in front of the MI6 building where a few Bond films have been shot is a really cool experience. Vauxhall is vastly redeveloped now. being a stones throw away from Victoria, and still the poor London of 'South of the River' means that it remains both affordable and mixed in experience: part official and modern, part ethnic truth.
And then there's always The Vauxhall Tavern, the ever present and singularly defiant gay haunt..

London has so many bridges crossing the River Thames! This one does offer a great view from Battersea up to the London eye but I wouldn’t come here just for the view.

It nice if you happen to just be walking by!

There is a really nice pub called The Riverside alongside there which has a great outside area where you can sit by the river.

While in London again, one day we had been travelling to various locations via the tube. Late in the afternoon we got off the tube train at the Vauxhall tube station with the intention of crossing the river to Pimlico.
It was necessary to use the Vauxhall Bridge to cross the river. The architecture of this bridge is nothing out of the ordinary. Probably the most notable features are the sculptured figures which are attached to the bridge supports.
The bridge itself carries a massive volume of road traffic. While crossing the bridge, we only paused briefly at the centre-point to enjoy the river views. Before long, the exhaust fumes became a bit over-powering and so we pushed on to the other side as quickly as we could.
No need to go out of your way to see this bridge!

This bridge was on my 10-year olds "hit list" in London so he could get a pic of himself with MI6 headquarters in the background. Pretty view over the Thames as well, but this is a functional bridge not meant for a postcard photograph. A quick stop for the James Bond fan in your life is always a good move.
