London city cruise tour from greenwich pier to westminster pier

Greenwich Pier is a pier on the River Thames in the Royal Borough of Greenwich, London. It is operated by London River Services and called at by various river cruise operators, mostly operating public cruise services to and from Central London. It is currently undergoing major refurbishment and a temporary dock is in place.

Local attractions

Greenwich is a popular tourist destination in London and is now a World Heritage Site. The pier is immediately adjacent to the 1869-built clipper ship Cutty Sark, the Old Royal Naval College and the Greenwich Hospital, and an approximately 500 metre walk from the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich Park, and 200 metres from central Greenwich, with its covered market and shops. Due to its proximity to the Royal Observatory, Greenwich Pier lies just to the west of the Prime Meridian. (Sir Francis Chichester's yacht Gypsy Moth IV, which was for many years on display close to Greenwich Pier and Cutty Sark, is no longer on the site.)

River Services

Greenwich is a major stop for several river service operating companies, including:

  • the Thames commuter catamaran service run by Thames Clipper from Embankment, via Tower Millennium Pier, Canary Wharf and on to the O2 and Woolwich Arsenal Pier
  • the Westminster-Greenwich cruise service by Thames River Services
  • the City Cruises tourist cruise via Westminster, Waterloo and Tower piers
  • Campion Launches (Viscount Cruises) operate a Sunday Evening Sightseeing Cruise from Greenwich Pier during the months of June, July, August & September.
