St George's Road is a road in Southwark, London running between Westminster Bridge Road to the northwest and Elephant and Castle to the southeast. Its name derives from its crossing of St George's Fields, being an open rural area of the parish of St George the Martyr, Southwark. The road was laid out as part of the communications improvements for Westminster Bridge, from the 1740s, connecting the Bridge to the Elephant and Castle junctions with New Kent Road, Walworth Road and Kennington Park Road.
St George's Cathedral, Southwark is on the north side and the Imperial War Museum is on the south side opposite, at the junction with Lambeth Road (A3203). The London College of Communication is at the Elephant and Castle end of the road.
