  • Visitor Information

Millbank Pier, located near to Tate Britain, was opened on 22 May 2003 by then mayor Ken Livingstone, creating a 'Tate to Tate' link by boat as well as a stop-off for river cruises and boats navigating the Thames. Marks Barfield Architects - designers of the London Eye - created a 'functional floating sculpture', earning them Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) Award in 2004 for the pier's high architectural standard, contribution to its local environment and design excellence. London River Services Limited, a subsidiary of TfL, owns and operates the eight passenger piers between Millbank and Greenwich.
