Waterloo Road is a road straddling Lambethmarker and Southwarkmarker, Londonmarker, SE1. It runs between Westminster Bridge Roadmarker close to St George's Circusmarker at the south-east end and Waterloo Bridgemarker across the River Thames towards London's West Endmarker district at the north-west end.

At the northern end near the river are the Queen Elizabeth Hallmarker and the Hayward Gallerymarker to the west, the National Film Theatremarker below the road, and the Royal National Theatremarker to the east. In earlier times, this was the location of Cuper's Gardensmarker.

Just to the south in the middle of a large roundabout with underground walkways is the British Film Institute (BFI) London IMAXmarker Cinema. Nearby to the east is the James Clerk Maxwell Building of King's College Londonmarker, named in honour of the physicist James Clerk Maxwell (1831–1879), who was a professor at the college from 1860.

A little further to the south is St. John's Waterloo church, built in 1824 to celebrate the victory of the Napoleonic Wars. The church was firebombed in 1940 and much of the interior was destroyed. It was restored and reopened in 1951, serving as the parish church for the Festival of Britain on the South Bankmarker nearby.

Continuing south, to the west is Waterloo Stationmarker. To the east is the Union Jack Clubmarker in Sandell Street and, further on, the well-known and historic Old Vic Theatremarker to the south of the corner with The Cutmarker. Also located even further south in Waterloo Road on the west side is the headquarters of the London Ambulance Service. On the opposite side is 157 Partnership House, former headquarters of USPG, CMS and other church mission/community-based organisations. Now boarded up and ready for redevelopment.

The road is designated as the A301, which continues across Waterloo Bridge.
