Question about Blackfriars Bridge

We'll be staying just south of Blackfriars Bridge (at the Travelodge--thanks so much for the earlier advice). I stayed in the area before and loved being able to walk down by the river. However, I remember a fair number of steps from the bridge/street level down to the Thames walk. Does anyone know if there is ramp/disabled access on either side of the bridge? One member of my party uses a walker, and stairs are very difficult.

thanks again.

From the Travelodge Southwark you can walk to the South Bank via Great Suffolk Street, Sumner Street and Holland Street. From point B on the linked to map there's a cut through to the South Bank, or you can walk to the west side of the Tate Modern.

Thanks so much.

Its funny how different it is to know where to go and to figure out how to get there accessibly.

This may not be helpful but t he main diference recently is the new station which has entrances at both ends of the railway bridge just to the east of the road bridge. Have a look for their lift access as you may find it takes you down to the walkway level without needing a ticket.
