Albert Dock is one of Britain’s top heritage attractions, situated in a spectacular riverside setting as part of Liverpool's UNESCO designated 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.
Today, Albert Dock houses the largest collection of Grade I listed buildings in the United Kingdom and is home to award winning visitor attractions including the Beatles Story, International Slavery Museum, Merseyside Maritime Museum and Tate Liverpool.
Visitors can dine at a fine selection of family friendly restaurants suiting all palettes and budgets, including The Smugglers Cove, Gusto, Spice Lounge or What's Cooking? to name but a few. There are also fabulous Dockside cafes including Tate Cafe or Rubens Coffee Shop or, if you're looking for something different, classic British fare at Docklands Fish & Chips, pancakes at La Crepe Rit or relax at a unique pay-per-minute cafe called Ziferblat.
With gift shops and two on-site hotels (Holiday Inn Express and Premier Inn) Albert Dock is perfect for both day visits and short breaks.
