Blackfriars Millennium Pier is a pier on the River Thames, in the Blackfriars area of the City of London, United Kingdom. It is served by boats operating under licence from London River Services and is situated on the north bank of the Thames, adjacent to Blackfriars Bridge.
Blackfriars Millennium Pier is a major transport interchange being close to Blackfriars rail and tube station, providing direct interchange with Thameslink and South Eastern rail services, and with the London Underground Circle and District Lines. The Pier is seen predominantly as a commuter pier and thus is not typically served by River Bus services during weekend and bank holiday periods.
The original pier was made in 2000. It was funded by the City of London Corporation and London Transport.
In order to allow for works on the Thames Tideway Tunnel, the pier was moved to a new location 250 m (820 ft) downstream and opened in October 2016.
The pier is served by river bus service route RB6 to Putney and route RB1 between Embankment and Woolwich Arsenal operated by MBNA Thames Clippers. Thames Tigers operate daily scheduled services and private charter trips from the pier.
