Everybody's saying nice things about us!
Chris Livetts, Thames Luxury Charters
I am delighted to endorse and support the excellent vision of The Friends of Butler Wharf Jetty. Connectivity to the Thames, access, culture, cleanliness and security are of huge importance to all stakeholders and visitors.
The jetty should be an enjoyable open space that stimulates the mind, reminds us of our heritage and re engages Butlers Wharf with maritime activities.
This unique open space should be embraced for peace and harmony with the natural elements of the River Thames.

We welcome the Butler’s Wharf Riverside project in its efforts to combine the needs of the local community with world-leading design in finding a way forward for this important part of London.
Nick Napier, Chair
STRA (Shad Thames Residents Association)
The jetty at Butler's Wharf, at the heart of Shad Thames, is a valuable place for us all. STRA wholeheartedly supports the aims of the Butler's Wharf Riverside Trust, and their efforts to bring the whole community together to maintain the jetty as a usable space for local people.
Janet Morris, Chair
STAMP (Shad Thames Area Management Partnership)
I have lived in the area for over 30 years and enjoy Butler’s Wharf Riverside every day. But we all know that it now needs support to reach its full potential. The Trust's proposals would help Butler’s Wharf Riverside to become what it could (and should) be - a leader in greening, biodiversity and sustainability; a celebration of the local industrial heritage; a place which contributes positively to people’s health and well-being; and an effective way to support local businesses.

I walk from Rotherhithe to London Bridge for work every day. I love this part of the river and I never tire of the views which change so drastically with the tides and the seasons. It's the closest to clean air you'll find in London too.
I live nearby and love coming here with my two daughters, Ellie and Charlotte, who enjoy the fresh air and playing on the sculptures.
Steve Ridgway, Chairman, Visit Britain
London is the World’s No 1 global city so anything we do, like the plans here for Butlers Wharf Riverside help to keep it there, and that's a boon for tourists and residents alike.
We're so glad we found this place. What a fantastic view, and great for taking photographs. It's quiet and you get a great view of both Tower Bridge and the skyscrapers.
GLA member & Chair, Transport Committee
This local initiative is forward thinking and important to help us create a safe and green riverside walk to and from work, for thousands of Londoners, every day.
Le Pont de la Tour
At Le Pont de la Tour, we want to ensure the riverside at Butler’s Wharf reflects this beautiful and iconic part of London. In the shadow of Tower Bridge, it too deserves to be world-class.
I've lived here for 12 years and watched the jetty get more and more popular, with less and less money spent on it. The lighting is inconsistent, the paving slabs are crooked and broken, the benches are old and shabby and there is almost no planting. It could be so much better. Now is the time.
Abundance London supports the aims of the Butler's Wharf Riverside Trust and wishes them every success in their campaign.
John Rushton, Jubilee Garden's Trust
There should be a quality 'walking experience' all along the South Bank route - from Chiswick to Greenwich. Every part of the jigsaw is unique and should have open access, be well maintained and cherished. Good luck to you at Butler's Wharf Riverside.
Peter Finch Chairman, River Thames Society
The River Thames Society endorses the aims of the Trust, which are compatible with our commitment to protect and promote the river. We wish you well and will lend our support in any way we can."
