Blackfriars railway station was a station on Blackfriars Road in south London on the South Eastern Railway between Charing Cross and London Bridge stations. It is now sometimes known as Blackfriars Road station, to avoid confusion with the nearby Blackfriars station across the river. The former entrance under the railway bridge is still clearly marked.
In 2005 the bricked up former street level entrance was cleaned up and original wording was restored. At track level widening of the viaduct on its north side is the only indication of its site. In July 2009 planning permission was given for a cafe to be built over the entranceway to the station.
