1. Albert Dock
Albert Dock is evocative of Liverpool’s rich industrial history, made up of docks and warehouses along the waterfront. Standing since 1846, Albert Dock was the first non-combustible warehouse system in the world, as the complex uses iron and brick in place of wood. Albert Dock has historically been one of the foremost and innovative docks in the world, and a front runner in technology such as hydraulic cranes. Today, Albert Dock is a heritage site and attracts around 4,000,000 tourists every year. This is a great place to find entertainment and food, as well as explore the well-preserved history of this maritime city.
