240 Blackfriars’ location is second to none.

240 Blackfriars dominates the corner of Southwark Street and Blackfriars Road, marking the gateway to the eclectic and historic district of Bankside.

Local energy

Bankside has become one of London’s most exciting destinations and is home to some of the world’s most famous cultural and business institutions:
– The Old Vic
– The National Theatre
– Oxo Tower
– Tate Modern
– The Globe Theatre
– Borough Market
– The Shard
It is now a creative, vibrant, and compelling business location, attracting a growing number of global companies.

Gormand Bankside


Bars, bistros, pubs, markets and restaurants now pepper the area, making Bankside one of the top places to eat in the Capital.

National Attractions


Few areas in any city in the world can match the location of Bankside for culture. Under Elizabeth I, The Globe The Rose and Bear invented theatre in this country. Under her namesake, The National Theatre, The Royal Festival Hall and Tate Modern defined the arts for our age.

Independent Spirit


Of all the character traits that come together to make Bankside independence is probably the strongest. The area has always stood apart.
