  • Address: Albert Dock
  • Hours: Open daily
Liverpool’s wealth came from the shipping trade over the centuries, and the city’s maritime legacy is celebrated at the revitalized waterfront area known as Albert Dock.

The dock is lined with sturdy five-story warehouses, restored and reinvigorated to house boutiques, museums, restaurants and bars. The mix of Victorian-era cast-iron columns, Grade I-listed buildings and waterfront walkways creates an evocative atmosphere, where the past seamlessly melds with the present.

There’s plenty to do at Albert Dock, the location of many of Liverpool’s most popular attractions. View contemporary art at the Tate Liverpool gallery, delve into seafaring history at the Merseyside Maritime Museum, or take a poignant journey through the history of the slave trade at the International Slavery Museum.

The Beatles Story is also at Albert Dock, a must-do for music fans of all ages. Boat tours cross the Mersey for a tour of the docks from the water, and the Echo Wheel provides the best vantage point for views over the city center.

It’s easy to spend a day and evening at Albert Dock, with varied dining and drinking venues from classic British pubs to Italian cafes and stylish bars.

Practical Info

Albert Dock is a little southwest of the city center on the River Mersey. It’s a 15-minute stroll from the Cavern Quarter, via the Liverpool One shopping center.
