Greenland Pier, London

Greenland Pier, London

Greenland Pier is a pier on the River Thames in London, United Kingdom. The pier is situated at the eastern end of Greenland Dock in the London Borough of Southwark.


Greenland Pier is a stop on the Thames commuter catamaran service run by Thames Clipper from Embankment, via Tower Millennium Pier, Canary Wharf and on to Greenwich, the O2 and Woolwich Arsenal Pier.


Threats of closure due to maintenance issues have been a recurrent problem in recent years. Despite a pledge to revamp the pier for the London 2012 Olympics, Southwark Council was unable to secure the investment required and served notice of the pier’s closure on 16 March 2012. Subsequent negotiations between Thames Clippers and Southwark Council resulted in its purchase by Thames Clippers, who will now take responsibility for its upkeep.
