Albert Dock, Liverpool

4.6
Albert Dock is among the country's most architecturally and historically significant collections of buildings, and houses Liverpool's most exciting attractions. It opened in 1846 as Britain's first structure built from cast iron, brick, and stone, and was the world's first fireproof construction. Start in the Beatles Story exhibit, where you'll learn all about the four Liverpudlians and their incredible impact on modern music. View some of the most acclaimed British and international contemporary art exhibits at the Tate Liverpool. Head into Mersey Maritime Museum to discover Liverpool's maritime heritage, and study ancient and modern slavery in the International Slavery Museum. You'll also find a large selection of cafes, restaurants, and shops among the buildings' grand colonnades. Some of the museums have an entrance fee, but a stroll around the complex is free.

  • The docks have their importance to ships able to influence to the port. The level of water in a day can increase or sleep. 8 m-hence the tama and premier port. Today at the docks are few and far between, but this place has its own climate-thanks to the Tate Museum, the Museum of the history of the Beatles, many souvenir shops or restaurants. They are suitable for the nature of this place-perfect for a slow walk and explore the city.

  • A great place to wander if the weather is on your side, good selection of bars and restaurants if you're after food and/or drinks. Keep an eye on the events section of their website as they have some brilliant things going on. And go sometime when the sun is setting because the whole place is a bit gorgeous.
  • Do you want a view of the Liverpool waterfront near the cruise terminal and the eye of Liverpool? Did you know the Albert dock is the right place to go if you want to see it? I know what your thinking! "What's my opinion on it?" Well, I will tell you. One day, I walked through this placed and saw the Beatles story and the Liverpool waterfront while going to the Pier Head. But what was my opinion on what I saw? I'll get to that in a moment. I also saw the Tate gallery while walking through this place. Over all, It is an awesome place to go and I definitely recommend you to come to this place.
  • Bustling, vibrant, exciting. Lots of places to see, we visited the Maritime museum which was fascinating. Everything was clean, well set out, very interesting and informative. It was Armed forces day with helicopters, tanks and a ship named The Iron Duke in the dock, which we had a tour around, it was amazing with the crew on hand to answer questions. The tall ships were in the dock which we also had a walk around. The sea cadets on the ropes or rigging were fantastic performing synchronized gymnastics high up, very impressive. Street vendors were selling food and drink, the bands were marching and playing, the whole area was wonderful the architecture is beautiful and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit.
  • Interesting museums especially Liverpool Life by the Pier Head. A great insight of what Liverpool was and is made of. It's people and industries. Near to the 3 graces. Fabulous buildings. Right on Liverpool One's doorstep-not far to the shops either. There's lots to do and a great array of eateries.
  • Fantastic historical setting. How many cities have such treasures right on the waterfront right in the city centre. Great walks fantastic museums including the Tate and great bars and restaurants. Perfectly linked to Liverpool One. Always lots going on in and around the Albert Dock.
