Pier / Boardwalk
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.

  • After seventeen years of pretty well annual visits, I should know the Albert Dock, and yet there is always some new addition. Something for all, and usually within a reasonable price.  more »
  • Beautiful scenery and so so clean, really enjoyable to walk around. Lots to see and do may need to book the restaurants for evening meals as they get quite busy and to avoid disappointment.  more »

  • Great place to visit with lots to see and do. Liverpool museum of Life is great if you enjoy anything to do with Liverpool. There are plenty of fair type stalls and rides at the moment, a pop up champagne bar and even a little beach area! The Docks have a variety of shops and there is the Tate gallery and the International slave museum which is definitely worth a visit.
  • Lovely area, well keep, love the new canal way that has been added in the last couple off years, lots of events and almost always something going on down here. Lovely for even just going for a walk round. Only down side is the prices of ferry stations and restaurants due to it being a tourist hot spot.
  • What a superb historic location to spend a day. Lovely shops and eating establishments. Catch a sunny day and you can't go wrong get.
  • A great place to visit if you are in Liverpool!!!! Museum, restaurants, shopping or just simply sit aside the Mersey! Of all the cities I have been visiting in England, Liverpool is my most favorite 💛
  • We stopped in to the Dock as we were driving from Cumbria To Wales to break up the drive, we had a lovely walk round and stopped for lunch. We went to 'Rubens' cafe I think it was called, for lunch and they let us have the dog sit with us at the outside table which was great. The Dock is lovely and busy with lots to do and see, but overall very expensive because of its location and tourism popularity. Too expensive for what it is really. But gorgeous on the outside. The public toilets were horrid, needed a really good clean. Seemed like they hadn't been cleaned since the previous day based on how busy it gets and the state of the toilets.
