Holidays in Albert Dock

Holiday Travel Guide
Albert Dock which includes a bay or harbour and heritage architecture

Find the heart of the city in this stylish waterfront precinct, complete with fantastic dining, bars, museums, galleries and a fascinating maritime history.

Liverpool’s lively entertainment precinct started out as one of the most important shipping docks in the world. The dock and its series of warehouse facilities were built in 1846 and featured hydraulic cranes, the most advanced docking systems of the day. Albert Dock has since seen a complete renovation and now offers an interesting mix of heritage sites, cosmopolitan bars and restaurants and a selection of the city’s finest cultural institutions. Albert Dock sits in pride of place in the city’s centre and makes for a fantastic spot to base your visit in Liverpool.

The dock’s historical area is best explored by day, during a scenic walk along the water’s edge. Look out across to the port’s historic heart and see classic wooden ships moored at the dock as they have for over a century. Tour boats offer seaside guides to the area. Join one to learn about the port precinct’s fascinating history and for fantastic maritime sightseeing.

After the trip, wander back along the docks to find museums and galleries. Visit The Tate Liverpool, one of the country’s most significant art galleries. Works by artists such as Pablo Picasso, Jackson Pollock and Santiago Sierra are on display here, as well as many prestigious British artists. Learn about the diverse aspects of the city’s history at nearby attractions the Beatles Story, International Slavery Museum and the Merseyside Maritime Museum.

In the evening, visit one of the bars in the area and enjoy a cold drink such as a locally brewed beer, cider or lager. Take a seat at a dockside restaurant and try traditional British fish and chips or a more international dish. Locals and visitors alike can be found enjoying the atmosphere of this lively restaurant and bar quarter, especially on weekends.

Albert Dock is located just outside the city centre and is easily accessible by car, bus or on foot. Parking is available 24 hours a day for a fee. Albert Dock is open daily for free but the museums, restaurants and galleries have independent prices and operating times.
