Cadogan Pier was built in 1841 to bring potential buyers to Lord Cadogan’s new estate of houses in Chelsea. It was a landmark structure and was the prime river gateway for visitors to Chelsea.
The Pier was rebuilt in 1875 to accommodate Albert Bridge, recognised as one of London's most beautiful bridges. The Albert Bridge provides an incredible back drop to the Pier, which also benefits from outstanding views overlooking Battersea Park to the south.
The Pier has been used for many important events over its history, most recently for the royal Jubilee Pageant.
The Pier is a London landmark and the only one of its kind in the Royal Borough of Chelsea and Kensington.
