Albert Dock


The magnificent Albert Dock Liverpool is one of Britain’s top heritage attractions. Situated in an enviable location on the banks of the River Mersey, the attraction is also part of the city’s prestigious UNESCO World Heritage site.

Designed by Jesse Hartley, it opened in 1846 and remained a fully working dock until closing in 1972. It later underwent a huge restoration programme and was reopened as a visitor attraction in 1988 by HRH Prince Charles. It remains the UK’s largest group of Grade I listed buildings.

Albert Dock is home to award winning visitor attractions including the Beatles Story, International Slavery Museum, Merseyside Maritime Museum and Tate Liverpool. There is a vast choice of stylish family friendly cafés, bars and restaurants including Circo, Docklands Fish & Chips, Gusto, PanAm, and What’s Cooking? You can even stay at the Albert Dock – there are two on-site hotels, Holiday Inn Express and Premier Inn.
