Description

Liverpool is a maritime city in northwest England, where the River Mersey meets the Irish Sea. A key trade and migration port from the 18th to the early 20th centuries, it’s also, famously, the hometown of The Beatles.

The Albert Dock is a complex of dock buildings and warehouses in Liverpool, England. Designed by Jesse Hartley and Philip Hardwick, it was opened in 1846, and was the first structure in Britain to be built from cast iron, brick and stone, with no structural wood. Situated in a World Heritage Site waterfront, Albert Dock features the largest collection of Grade I listed buildings in the country.

Attractions in Liverpool include the award-winning Beatles Story, which tells the story of four of the city’s most famous residents who shook music and the world forever.  Tate Liverpool is the home of art and culture at Albert Dock, past collections have included Andy Warhol and Jackson Pollock. Remember the Merseyside Maritime Museum, where you can explore Liverpool’s maritime heritage and take some to learn about Liverpool’s history of slave trade at the International Slavery Museum and much more.
