The A200 is an A road in London running from London Bridge to Greenwich [ [http://www.sabre-roads.org.uk/roadlists/r10/notes.php?number=A200 SABRE - Road Lists - Roads by 10 - A200 ] ] . It runs south-east from the A3 road along Duke Street Hill, then Tooley Street and Jamaica Road, following the River Thames until the junction with Rotherhithe Tunnel when it turns south down Lower Road. It follows the Thames again in Deptford, after passing Surrey Quays and becoming Evelyn Street. At the junction with Deptford Church Street it turns due east along Creek Road, over Deptford Creek to finish by the Cutty Sark at Greenwich Church Street, part of the A206 road.

Tooley Street

The name derives from St Olave's Street, after the Church of St Olave [The London Encyclopaedia, Ben Weinreb, 1983] . For much of its history the street has been lined with warehouses, and in 1861 Scovell's warehouse caught fire, resulting in the largest peacetime fire in the Port of London [ [http://www.portcities.org.uk/london/server/show/conMediaFile.7221/The-Tooley-Street-fire.html The Tooley Street fire. - Historical events - Port Cities ] ] .

Jamaica Road

Tooley Street becomes Jamaica Road at Shad Thames. A little over halfway down (from the Tower Bridge end) lies Bermondsey tube station, which is served by the Jubilee Line. A thoroughfare of shops follows, and the road continues on until Culling Circus roundabout, where it turns roughly 90 degrees south towards Deptford and becomes Lower Road. Alternatively at the roundabout, you can turn left into Brunel Road or leave by the Rotherhithe Tunnel. Southwark Park lies at the south-eastern end.

Lower Road

Lower Road runs for roughly a mile, past Surrey Quays shopping centre until it reaches Deptford, where it becomes Evelyn Street. Southwark Park runs the length of Lower Road, to the west.

Evelyn Street

Named after diarist John Evelyn, the street runs from the Plough Way junction south to the junction with Deptford Church Street. There is both a McDonalds and a KFC along this stretch.

Creek Road

Creek Road continues over Deptford Creek until it joins the A206 at the Cutty Sark.
