Viewing from the Bridge, or from the North bank embankment are recommended. Hammersmith Flyover is open to light traffic, reducing the congestion. Parking on the South bank on Londsdale Road or at the NCP car parks in Hammersmith are possible, or on the expensive meters near the north side of the Bridge.
