London Eye Pier
|Type||River bus and tourist/leisure services|
|Locale||River Thames, London, UK|
|Operator||London River Services|
It is served by various river transport and cruise operators.
It should not be confused with the former Waterloo Police Pier, on the opposite side of the river on Victoria Embankment next to Waterloo Bridge, which has since been renamed the Tower Lifeboat Station and has been the base for the RNLI's Thames lifeboat service since 2006.
It was one of five new piers opened in 2000 on the Thames funded by the Millennium Commission as part of the Thames 2000 project (the others being Blackfriars Millennium Pier, Millbank Millennium Pier, Tower Millennium Pier, and Westminster Millennium Pier), as part of an integrated transport and regeneration strategy for the Thames led by London's Cross River Partnership.
The pier is served by various services including:
- Commuter boat services between Embankment and Woolwich (Thames Clippers)
- Summer leisure cruises between Westminster and Greenwich (City Cruises)
- Speedboat tour cruises to Canary Wharf and Thames Barrier (Thames Rockets)
Waterloo is a turnaround point for the commuter boat; upriver services call at Embankment, then Waterloo, where they begin the downriver service back towards Bankside.
