Stamford Street is a street in Lambeth and Southwark, London, England, just south of the River Thames. It runs between Waterloo Road to the west and Blackfriars Road to the east. At the western end, in the middle of a large roundabout, is the British Film Institute London IMAX Cinema. On the north side at this end is the Waterloo campus of King's College London, the Schiller International School, the English Language Institute and London City College. Halfway along to the south is the London Nautical School. Also close by to the north are the Royal National Theatre, the London Television Centre and the Oxo Tower.

King's College London has two buildings at the western end of Stamford Street, the Franklin-Wilkins Building (Cornwall House) to the north and the Stamford Street Apartments opposite to the south on its Waterloo Campus.

The headquarters of the supermarket chain J Sainsbury used to be located in Stamford Street [1].

The street forms part of the A3200, which continues at York Road to the west and Southwark Street to the east.
