The vibrant heart of Liverpool’s historic waterfront, the Albert Dock is the North West’s most popular free tourist attraction, attracting around five million visitors each year (based on a footfall people counting system). The Merseyside Visitor Survey shows that 16% of Merseyside’s visitors and 64% of Liverpool’s visitors come to the Albert Dock.

The largest collection of Grade I listed buildings in the UK, the Dock is home to both award-winning visitor attractions and a diverse range of stylish bars and restaurants; exciting retail opportunities and two hotels. There are also more than 30 offices on the Dock estate, with over 2,000 people employed across the site.

This stunning UNESCO World Heritage Site is well served by major transport links, including the mainline rail station at Liverpool Lime Street, and local rail services, and is just a 20 minute taxi ride from Liverpool’s John Lennon Airport. On site there are 5,000 secure, 24-hour parking spaces.

Fast-becoming an iconic filming location, the Albert Dock lies on the waterfront at the heart of Liverpool’s visitor and consumer attractions, bordered by the Arena and Convention Centre Liverpool on one side, and the Pier Head on the other, which includes the magnificent Liver Building and new Museum of Liverpool. It is linked to the city centre by the Liverpool ONE shopping centre.
