A crime scene cordon is located on Cheyne Walk, a mansion-lined street that stretches along the River Thames and has long attracted famous residents like rock star Sir Mick Jagger.
A photo posted to the London 999 Twitter account shows the junction where the Albert Bridge meets Chelsea Embankment cordoned off and a blue forensic tent erected on the rubble-strewn road.
Motorists are advised to avoid the area due to road closures.
A section of the causeway between Battersea Bridge and the Royal Hospital Road and Albert Bridge is closed, according to Transport for London’s traffic website.
The next of kin of the woman had been informed, the police said.
Police are appealing for witnesses or anyone with dashcam footage to call 101 and quote CAD 1500/14 May.
