Blackfriars BridgeThe present Blackfriars Bridge, open to walkers and drivers, was opened in 1869 by Queen Victoria to whom the bridge was dedicated - a statue of her can be seen on the north side of the bridge. It was originally named 'William Pitt Bridge' (after the Prime Minister William Pitt) but was soon renamed after Blackfriars Monastery, a Dominican priory which once stood nearby.
