The Itchen Floating Bridge was a Chain Ferry in Southampton.

The floating bridge, a cable ferry, opened on 23 November 1836. A second ferry was added in 1881, and the operation was sold to the Southampton Corporation in 1934.

Construction of the present bridge began in 1974 and planned to take three years. It opened for traffic on 1 June 1977, with the floating bridge closing at the same time.
