The Great British Seaside

We do like to be beside the seaside – and this summer Royal Albert Dock is hanging up the bunting to celebrate all that’s best about the Great British Seaside.

We’ve got a programme of events lined up to capture all the things we love most about our days by the beach, from giant deckchairs and chip cones, to sundowner cocktails and even a special seafood charity dinner, find it all here on Liverpool's sunny waterfront.
