Blackfriars Road

Southwark tube station on the corner of Blackfriars Road and The Cut.

Blackfriars Road is a road in Blackfriars Bridge over the River Thames at the northern end, leading to the City of London. Halfway up on the west side is Southwark tube station, on the corner with The Cut. Opposite is Palestra, a large new office building which houses the Surface transport division of TfL.

The road forms part of the A201. The road adjoins Stamford Street and Southwark Street at the northern end. Originally known as Surrey Street, the road was built in the 1760s as the south approach to Blackfriars Bridge, and was laid out by the bridge surveyor, Robert Mylne.[1]
