The Savoy Pier is located just to the south of the Savoy Hotel on the river Thames, and not far from the site of the old Savoy Wharf. The pier is the central London base of Woods River Cruises. The pier was designed by Beckett Rankine in 1998 as a temporary structure and is an unusual design being restrained by transverse radial arms and longitudinal mooring cables. The contractor was Downtown Marine Construction who have since ceased trading.

notice of service transfer, November 2007

Scheduled river bus services operated from Savoy Pier from April 2004,[1] to November 2008[2] when they were transferred to Embankment Pier, a short distance up the Thames.
