Greenwich Pier

Greenwich Pier is on the south bank of the River Thames in the Royal Borough of Greenwich in Greater London. It was built in 1836 to cater for the many paddle steamers that brought visitors on day trips to Greenwich from London further up river. At the time, London's urban area did not extend as far out as Greenwich.

The pier is currently operated by London River Services and is used by various river operators, running public cruise services to and from Central London. It is immediately adjacent to the Cutty Sark and is within easy walking distance of a variety of other popular attractions. A major refurbishment was completed by London River Services in March 2018.

Greenwich Pier is a major stop for a number of river operators including:
