St. Katharine Pier is a river transport pier on the River Thames, in London, UK. It is operated by London River Services and served by various river transport and cruise operators.

It is situated on the north bank of the Thames, on the east side of Tower Bridge, and immediately in front of the Thistle Tower Hotel. The pier is about ten minutes walk from Tower Hill tube station.

St Katharine Pier should not be confused with the nearby St Katharine Docks, which is a private yacht marina and residential area.


The main service from St Katharine Pier is a "hop-on, hop-off" circular river cruise operated by Crown River Cruises which goes west non-stop to Westminster Millennium Pier before returning east via the South Bank arts centre.[1]

There is also a Westminster-Greenwich express service run by Thames River Services which circles around the Thames Barrier before returning to central London.[2]
