Families enjoying the Royal Albert Dock in the sunshine

About

The vibrant heart of Liverpool’s historic waterfront, the Albert Dock is the place to play, to see, to eat, drink and stay. Blending old and new, it’s contemporary, yet cultured; fun and friendly. You'll find museums, galleries and a huge range of venues to eat and drink in amid the lofty colonnades of this architectural splendour - the country's largest group of Grade I listed buildings.

You'll find some of the best independent stores including the Leather Satchel Co., Liverpool Pictures, Nauticalia and Nature's Treasure for unique gifts. There's plenty of places for a festive meal with cocktails with family, friends and loved ones. There's nothing more romantic than a starlit walk along the quayside with the festive lighting twinkling. 

The Royal Albert Dock is perfect distance from some of the best Christmas happenings this year. With the Ice Festival on the Pier Head just a 5 minute walk away and the ECHO Arena just a stones throw away. 

From culture and comedy to Beatles, boats, galleries and gigs, it's the place for food, fun, family: to eat, drink and dance.
