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. Put Albert Dock on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Liverpool tour planner.

  • Attended a wedding reception on the upper floor of the Maritime Museum, a stunning venue, with glorious sunset views of the redevelopment area, the Liver buildings and the River Mersey. Pleasant and helpful security staff made the event feel both safe and welcoming. Interesting exhibits and good arrangements of function rooms. Down point? Only two types of beer, which was imported lager actually, only available in the bottle, and at enormous cost!
  • Really nice play to stop and get some food with great views of the dock. I wish there was less tat and some more individual shops and cafes. Still a great place to go when you have been hitting the museum's first.
  • With the Tate Liverpool, International Slavery Museum and Maritime Museum housed in the breaktaking Grade I listed Albert Dock you can't really go wrong. There are usually several tall ships docked and there are many wonderful events hosted here. Great for all ages.
  • Fantastically friendly people. Great places to eat and drink. Brilliant free museums. Best place in UK for a city break.
  • Love this place. Freezing in November but still worth it to see the Christmas lights. Great mixture if cafes bars restaurants and museums along the Docks. A fair amount of benches for when you just want to soak up the atmosphere. Felt very safe even as a lone female after dark. The views across the Mersey are lovely and I saw beautiful sunsets.
