Greenwich Pier is a pier on the River Thames in the London borough of Greenwich, UK. It is operated by London River Services and called at by various river cruise operators, mostly operating public cruise services to and from Central London. The sights of Greenwich itself are within walking distance.
To get to central London one can take buses, underground or light railway.
Probably the most scenic an fun way is to take the river boat service to the Tower Bridge in London (about 6 pounds each way)

Greenwich is a popular tourist destination in London and is now a World Heritage Site. The pier is immediately adjacent to the clipper ship Cutty Sark, the Gypsy Moth IV and the Greenwich Hospital, and within two minutes walk of the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich Park, the Royal Naval College and central Greenwich, with its covered market and shops. Due to its proximity to the Royal Observatory, Greenwich Pier lies just to the west of the Prime Meridian.
