Nestled between Blackfriars Railway Bridge and Waterloo Bridge over the Thames River, Blackfriars Bridge is composed of five wrought-iron arches. The bridge was dedicated to Queen Victoria and features a statue in her honor on the north side. Walking along the piers of the bridge, visitors will notice the water bird carvings by sculptor John Birnie Philip. The bridge connects the Blackfriars tube station on the north end and sites such as the Tate Modern, an art gallery on the south end. Visitors will also enjoy lovely panoramic views of the the city's skyline.
