The Blake Pier was completed on Dec 29, 1900.  It was a ferry pier in Central, Hong Kong and named after Sir Henry Arthur Blake, the twelfth governor of Hong Kong.

Since its completion in 1900 till 1925, the Pier was the designated landing point for royalty, gov-ernors and other VIPs on HK Island, and also used to hold welcome or farewell ceremonies; until it was replaced by Queen's Pier completed in 1925. 

The first generation of the pier was demolished on May 15, 1965; with its steel pavilion was preserved, dismantled and rebuilt in Morse Park in Wong Tai Sin, Kowloon.  In 2006, the pavilion was again dismantled, restored to its original condition; and  relocated to Stanley, where it stands next to Murray House, which was similarly relocated brick by brick. The pier is now known as the Blake Pier at Stanley.

The second generation of the pier was officially opened on May 15, 1965 with a length of 580 feet and a garden on its top cover, one of the very few green zone in Central. It was demolished in 1993 to cope with the Central Reclamation Phase 1 project

卜公碼頭(英語:Blake Pier)於1900年12月29日落成,是原位於香港中環的一個渡輪碼頭,名稱取自香港第十二任總督卜力爵士。

由卜公碼頭在1900年落成至1925年期間,一直由香港總督及其他政要往返港島時使用,並且用作舉行歡迎或送別儀式,直到1925年被新落成的皇后碼頭取代。

第一代碼頭於1965年5月13日拆卸,上蓋隨後轉移至摩士四號公園的露天圓形劇場。2006年末該上蓋再次轉移至赤柱美利樓旁,重新裝上按原卜公碼頭樣式興建的新碼頭,名為赤柱卜公碼頭。第二代卜公碼頭於1965年5月15日啟用,全長五百八十呎,其上蓋建有花園,是當時中環少數綠化地帶之一。該碼頭1993年拆卸,而原址進行中區填海計劃第1期。
