Blackfriars Tube Station

Blackfriars is an underground and National Rail station in the City of London.  It’s on the District and Circle Lines in Zone 1.  It first opened under a different name in 1864 – it was then called St Paul’s.  The underground part opened in 1870 and the whole place was rebuilt in the 1970’s.  Part of the stonework from the old station was kept and can be seen at overground platform level.  It has the names of many destinations in south east England and Europe.  The station is now being rebuilt again, under the Thameslink Programme to upgrade the rail network.

It is just 2 minutes' walk from Cannon Street and 6 minutes' walk from Mansion House, the stations either side of it on the District and Circle Lines, so it would be quicker to walk if you're only going one stop.  It's also less than 500 metres from St Paul's Station, on the Central Line.

 

Attractions

 

St Paul’s Cathedral is nearby.  It was built in the 17th century after its predecessor was destroyed in the Great Fire of London.  Christopher Wren’s masterpiece is an iconic part of the London skyline and you get a great view over the city from the top of the church.

The Victoria Embankment is a walk along the north side of the river.  It was built in 1865 by Joseph Bazalgette as part of his design to improve London’s sewerage system.  The ships HMS President and HMS Wellington are permanently moored by the Embankment.  Another tourist attraction is Cleopatra’s Needle, an ancient Egyptian Obelisk brought to London in 1878.

On the other side of the river is the OXO Tower, which was built in the 1920’s as a warehouse.  It’s a very interesting art deco building. The company wanted to have an illuminated sign with their name on it, but at that time no advertising was allowed on the Thames.  To get around this, the architect put in windows at the top of the tower spelling out OXO in huge letters.  It now has shops at ground level and a restaurant on the top floor.
