About

Liverpool’s revolutionary Old Dock - the world’s first commercial enclosed wet dock.

Free ticketed tours for schools and members of the public will start from Merseyside Maritime Museum.

The internationally-important Old Dock has been carefully preserved under the new Liverpool ONE. For the first time in centuries the bed of the Pool - the creek that gave Liverpool its name - can be seen.

The Old Dock was discovered during excavations in 2001 after being buried since 1826. Developers Grosvenor preserved the dock and are making it publicly accessible as an important reminder of Liverpool’s historic status.

Public tours are every Tuesday and school tours every Wednesday. Additional public tours may be held on Wednesdays during school holidays.

Schools and members of the public can book places, which are limited, by calling 0151 478 4296.
