Tower Bridge Butlers Wharf Pier

Tower Bridge Butlers Wharf Pier

There is plenty to do around Tower Bridge (Butler’s Wharf Pier) which is next to one of the world’s most recognised tourist icons, Tower Bridge. It is also next door to the Tower of London which offers a thousand years of history in just one visit. The pier is on the edge of St Katharine Docks, a lovely relaxed marina where you can wander around looking at the moored yachts (and maybe dream of sailing away on one!). If you’re interested in larger water-going vessels, the Second World War warship HMS Belfast – now a museum about life onboard during a conflict – is a short walk along the southern bank of the river.
