    Of all the London stations -- this one offers the greatest view!

    Look out for the stones in the booking hall which were part of the facade of the original Blackfriars station opened in 1886 when it was the hub for travel to and from many Capital cities of Europe

    Amazing view of the River Thames from Platform 1. The Shard and the Tate Modern are to the right. And Tower Bridge in the distance.

    Scenic view of the city from the only train station that spans the river Thames and connects the North and South.

    Josef Dunne · February 10

    Not a great meeting place as it is too cold an no place to sit pick a pub nearby instead

    My favourite train station. Early morning trains are always a delight to enjoy the view over a dusky Thames 😊

    Thomas Parisot · January 31
  • Simon B.

    The view from the train station platforms is fabulous.

    Simon Bruce · November 20, 2014

    Surely the station with the best views in the world

    Enzo Martinelli · October 26, 2014
  • Mikey

    Great view of Thames from the platforms, which also makes the station quite relaxing. However, when it's cold the Thames makes the station colder. Prepare to freeze.

  • Penpit S.

    It's easy to reach UK landmarks from this station

    Penpit Supawaropas · October 3, 2014

    Most scenic station in London!

    Will Riley · September 21, 2014

    This has to be the nicest railway station in London. It spans across the Thames and has fantastic views downstream. Great views of The Shard; and Tower Bridge

    Jack T · August 11, 2014

    New station entrance is light and roomy.

    Seriously needs to be a coffee stand on the platforms. Craving my ass off at this time in the morning.

    The only train station to span a river ! An engineering marvel ! Micheal Portillo would be impressed

    If you take one number for your train journey from Blackfriars, make it 61016. You can text to tell us about non-emergencies on a train or at a station (in emergencies dial 999).

    Toilets are clean and functional

    Nice modern station

    Mike P · November 11, 2012
  • Kieran T.

    Exiting southbound, look for the yellow brick building on the left, just after the big red brick chimney. Repairs to the bricks on the gable end facing you look like a fiendish optical illusion!

    Kieran Turner · September 24, 2012
  • Nathan B.

    Try eating a sandwich on platform two..

    Nathan Bellamore · September 10, 2012
  • Sarahjane W.

    The biggest solar bridge in the world

    Sarahjane Widdowson · September 1, 2012
  • Nathan B.

    Unfortunately you cannot see the river at the moment, due to building work. Check out the builders milling around

    Nathan Bellamore · August 9, 2012
  • Ann L.

    Be sure to check out the art work by the southbank entrance

    Ann Longley · August 1, 2012
  • Jake W.

    Remember to check your routes before travelling! Sounds boring but it's worth it!

    Jake Woolmer · July 10, 2012
  • Jonathan A.

    Spanking new shiny station, same crappy Sunday service.

    Jonathan Ang · June 24, 2012
  • Steve S.

    Trains stop on the bridge, station on both sides of the river. Very cool

    Steve S · April 20, 2012
  • Ann L.

    Exit south to save time.

    Ann Longley · April 13, 2012
  • Ian B.

    Get here early, trains will leave early.

    Ian Bruce · March 15, 2012
  • Govert K.

    Underground station and link now re-opened, just don't cross the river using Oyster pay-as-you-go as TfL will charge!

    Govert Klaassen · March 2, 2012
  • Mike S.

    Always more room to board trains at the end of the new, longer platforms

    Mike Shaw · July 6, 2011
  • Tim H.

    Check out the great views as you cross the river!
