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.)
