Location Point

Cadogan Pier
Chelsea Embankment, London

The pier was built in the 19th Century by Lord Cadogan as a mooring point for boats on the Thames, and the location is considered one of London's best mooring places. Boats may be moored here (for a charge), though those of a historic or interesting nature are favoured! The pier is also a stop for the London Riverboat Service running from Putney to Blackfriars.

How to get here:

»

Underground (District/Circle): Sloane Square - Exit the station and then head along King's Road into Chelsea. Once you pass the cinema you'll be approaching Oakley Street on the left - turn into this and walk down to the Chelsea Embankment and Cadogan Pier. +

»

Bus: Kings Road Bus Map - The nearest stops to the pier are KF/KD on King's Road in Chelsea. Walk east and then turn right into Oakley Street, following this down to the Chelsea Embankment and Cadogan Pier. +
