Millbank Pier is on the north bank of the River Thames. Ideally located for access to Tate Britain and UAL: Chelsea College of Arts, the pier itself has been referred to as a work of art and was designed by Marks Barfield, the same architects as The London Eye.

Serving residents or visitors to the neighbourhoods of Pimlico, Victoria and Westminster, the pier is a great option for passengers using a wheelchair, mobility scooter or pram, as it has step-free access from the Thames Path.

Tickets can be bought at ticket machines at the pier before travel, but to save time and money touch in and out with your Oyster or contactless card. You can also buy your tickets online or use the Uber app or the Thames Clippers Tickets app.
