Albert Dock, Liverpool
Categories: Piers & Boardwalks, Scenic Walking Areas, Shopping, Tourist Spots
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.

I had a great day out here. Ok, so the weather was quite good and that definitely helped. But honestly, I was really impressed with the regeneration and everything Albert Dock offered. In one hand, it was sad that there was no industrial economy but it was encouraging to see how they have converted it over to something for everyone to enjoy. There are several museums, many cafes and restaurants and the whole dockside to enjoy (including the Liver Building etc). I spent most of the day here and it was worthwhile making the detour into the city!
We often visit the docks. The events they host are often very enjoyable but even when they aren't hosting any there is a wide range of activities available. Visit the maritime museum or the tate gallery, grab a bite to eat or a drink in the many bars and restaurants. Within easy walking distance of the Liverpool museum, the pier head and Liverpool one.
Upmarket area offering cafe society dining and drinks. Busy tourist area. Great views of the Mersey. Pleasant detour and worth a look. Parking is pay and display.
