Located beside Westminster Bridge, across the road from the Houses of Parliament and below the famous statue of Boudicca,  Westminster Pier is a major destination for all visitors to London.

The pier is wheelchair, mobility scooter and pram accessible by ramp.

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.

River Bus services

During the week, Westminster is the terminus of most Westbound RB1 services. You can board an Eastbound RB1 service to North Greenwich or Woolwich piers every 20 - 30 minutes throughout the day. For westbound travel, RB2 serves piers up to Battersea Power Station but to go further west, you may find it easier to visit nearby Embankment Pier where you can board RB6 services.

On weekends, you can board an RB1 service from Westminster to travel west as far as Battersea Power Station and east to North Greenwich every 20 minutes.

Please check our timetable before travelling.
