The Albert Dock was opened in 1846 by Prince Albert and was designed by Jesse Hartley and Philip Hardwick. It was the first dock to be built in stone and had it's own revolutionary world class docking sytem for loading and unloading goods from the shops.

After World War II docking went into decline and the dock was closed in 1972. Following intensive regeneration and redevelopment of the site, the dock was re-opened in 1988. Albert Dock is part of Liverpool's UNESCO designated World Heritage Maritime Mercantile City and attracts many visitors today.

Albert Dock houses a number of tourist attractions including the Merseyside Maritime Museum, International Slavery Museum, the Beatles Story, Tate Liverpool alongside hotels, cafes, restaurants and shops.
