Royal Albert Dock Liverpool, Liverpool

4.6
Royal Albert Dock Liverpool 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 Dock is the main attraction in Liverpool. This place is surrounded by many museums including the TITANIC museum. Yes, TITANIC was here on the initial days. There are many nice monumental buildings for good photographs. After seeing all the museums, take a walk in the near the sea area, you will feel loved.. Yes there is a love locks street near the Dock. Tie a love lock 🔒 with your loved ones and celebrate the occasion with a cool breeze of air
  • Great place to visit either as a tourist or a local. Loads to do & see at the Albert Dock. Plenty of places to stop for something to eat as well. Easy to get to & find your way around. Is home to many iconic shots of the city skyline & attractions of the city. Always worth a trip whenever you are in Liverpool
  • Great place. full of history. Love walking round. Plenty of places to grab a bite to eat. All the times I have been there the food has been enjoyable.
  • Love this place. It's an ideal place to visit on a weekend. You can spend a whole day here. Less than a 5 minute walk from there, you can even go on the ferry across the Mersey. Well it's just a boat trip with appropriate music...all good fun! There's the Liverpool Tate Museum, Maritime Museum, Beatles Museum, an old ship to go aboard, various quirky shops, souvenir shops, cafés, bars, restaurants. There's Liverpool's brand new museum a 5 minute walk away too! And the Liverpool Echo Arena 5 minutes away. I don't think it's sponsored by the Liverpool Echo anymore though. I've probably missed something off here as well! And it's just a feel good place which is good for a meander around if you've just got an afternoon spare. You'll be back again and again. And if that doesn't float your boat, Liverpool One is 5 minutes walk away too, if you fancy a bit of retail therapy. And that's on the edge of the city centre. Everything is so close together. For me it's always my first choice of NW cities!
  • Thank almighty God that this place is made so beautiful, can't imagine a better and beautiful place like this. Manchester definitely misses this kind of waterfront. The problem with this place is, it is too big to discover in a single day. Would be wonderful if there is some kind of informative guide at every single point.
