Liverpool’s historic Albert Dock has become one of the biggest attractions in a city that isn’t short on reminders of its maritime past.
The dock was constructed in the 1840s, and covered almost 8 acres; at the time it was Britain’s first building to be made from brick, stone and cast iron. Today, the dock offers stunning views of Liverpool’s iconic skyline and is home to several attractions, including the city’s maritime museum, an interactive museum about the Beatles, and the northern branch of the Tate Modern gallery. There are about a dozen places to eat and drink, and a regular program of concerts.Places nearby:
