|Route outline (key)|
The A3203 is a short A-road in central London.
The road is one of three A-roads that meet at St George's Circus (the other two being the A3202 and the A201) and the only one that does not cross the junction. It is also the only one that leads away from the junction having restricted access: it can only be reached from the circus's bus lane and can only be left via a cycle lane.
The road soon becomes all-purpose and heads southwestward along Lambeth Road, skirting the Bakerloo Line's London Road depot before crossing the A201 by Southwark RC Cathedral. The road now skirts the park containing the Imperial War Museum, crossing the A23 at traffic lights at the other side. Continuing on the road soon goes through a tunnel under the railway lines approaching Waterloo station to pass St Mary-at-Lambeth church, now the Garden Museum to reach a roundabout on the A3036 Albert Embankment.
It heads roughly west, passing the Catholic Cathedral and Imperial War Museum. It reaches the Albert Embankment by Lambeth Palace and crosses Lambeth Bridge to end on the A3212 Millbank. The river crossing was not in the original 1922 route - it seems to have been added after 1935.
