  • Visitor Information

Downriver from Rotherhithe Tunnel and close to Narrow Street in Limehouse, Canary Wharf Pier serves London's busy financial district. As a result, the pier's traffic is largely the result of commuter services delivering office workers from central London via the river. These commuter services are operated by Thames Clipper but the pier itself is run by the Transport for London subsidiary, London River Services. From Canary Wharf Pier you can cross over the river using the Hilton Docklands - Canary Wharf Ferry - look out for the boats with 'FERRY' written on the side.
