The Albert Dock is a truly stunning architectural triumph. Opened in 1846, it soon became a treasure house of precious cargoes from all over the world. Today a £100 million redevelopment has transformed it into one of Liverpool’s busiest and most cosmopolitan centres and a top heritage attraction. The Albert Dock offers entertainment from fashionable bars and restaurants to the Tate Liverpool, the famous Beatles Story, the Maritime Museum and HM Customs & Excise National Museum. Combined with niche retail boutiques the Albert Dock offers entertainment within beautiful historic surroundings. Neighbouring the Albert Dock on either side are the new Liverpool Echo Arena and the world famous Royal Liver Building.
