We are excited to launch our all new digital heritage trail, which will take visitors on a tour of the Albert Dock and unearth fascinating secrets that have been hidden until now.


Albert Dock Hidden Histories, created in partnership with Merseyside Maritime Museum, invites visitors of all ages to explore, discover and be inspired in a way like never before. You can pick up the trail on your mobile device here at the Dock or simply access it on the Albert Dock website from the comfort of your home.

A free, two-day, family-fun event on May 20-21, will celebrate the launch, and see tour guides available onsite to help visitors as they embark on the trail, bringing their own unique insights to the experience. There will also be a selection of free fairground rides to entertain the children, face painting plus performances from Meet the Funnels, The Mersey Belles and the interactive periscope ‘A few feet up’.

RIBA Liverpool city tours will also be offering one hour tours of the Albert Dock to learn more about the history and magnificent architecture. Advanced booking is essential as places are limited. CLICK HERE to book.

Some of the exciting features of Albert Dock Hidden Histories: –

• Explore the various ‘dock stop’ icons across the ‘game map’ to unlock hidden information and photographs; and then physically go find them to discover other fascinating facts and features

• Swap between present and past views to reveal the very different lives of the Dock over time. 

• Try out two different trails; Hidden Histories, which is a historic tour, and Awesome Albert – a modern trail – both the gateway to finding out more about Albert Dock

• Work together as a family with a selection of fun challenges that will test your observational skills

The all new digital heritage trail will be available to access at our FREE family fun days on May 20-21 via albertdock.com

The digital heritage trail was made possible by Heritage Lottery funding and created in partnership with Merseyside Maritime Museum
