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, .

Services[edit]

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.

Ownership[edit]

Threats of closure due to maintenance issues have been a recurrent problem in recent years.[1][2][3] Despite a pledge to revamp the pier for the London 2012 Olympics,[4] Southwark Council was unable to secure the investment required[5] and served notice of the pier's closure on 16 March 2012. Subsequent negotiations between Thames Clippers and Southwark Council[6] resulted in its purchase by Thames Clippers, who will now take responsibility for its upkeep.[7]
