A walk along the Thames is definitely one of London's greatest tourist attractions. In the area where the bridge is located you will find several fascinating places that are worth visiting. I especially recommend Tate Modern Galery.

Outstanding views to the east while standing on platform one at Blackfriars railway station. Recently modernized and updated, this train station is beautiful and has a great view looking towards Tower bridge, the Shard, Tate Modern and Saint Paul’s.

Along the Thames in London is one excellent bridge after another each with its own story, but the Blackfriars bridge has a major story as it provides rail network travel all day every day, fabulous design, well worth a view or visit.

Another bridge across the river we walked across. There isn't really much to say about this bridge, it's just a normal bridge. It doesn't give you as good a view of London though compared to some of the other bridges where you get some good...More

An interesting bridge that is for vehicles and pedestrian that sits just to the west of the Blackfriars rail bridge. Nothing particularly interesting to say but loads about it on Wikipedia.
