History: The district of Blackfriars on the bank of the River Thames is east of the The Temple and St. Pauls Cathedral to the southwest. Like so much of London Blackfriars has its rich history starting with the Blackfriars Monastery from 1221 to 1538 which became a successful institution popular for local government council meetings. It was known for its 'Black Parliament' which met for a few years till the start of the Wars of the Roses according to a historical review by Britannica. Eventually in the 16th century the monasteries were dissolved and the site became the Blackfriars Playhouse. By the 17th century the district became a wealthy residential enclave. Most famous of landmarks is the Blackfriars Bridge built from 1860 to 1869 replacing an earlier road from the 1760's. Today the area has become popular not only for residences but for commercial and retail interests.
