    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.

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

    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.

    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!

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

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