History

In the early days, as docks for the famed White Star and Cunard lines, the Chelsea Piers welcomed most of the world’s great liners. Sometimes, in the afternoons, one could see as many as twenty stacks, as five liners prepared to sail on the evening tide. In 2018, the Trust completed a public process that resulted in the sale of unused development rights from Chelsea Piers. Learn more here. Read more about Chelsea Pier’s history here
