Albert Dock

Albert Dock is a complex of nineteenth-century port docks and warehouses, currently transformed into a modern service and cultural center. It includes, among others Tate Liverpool gallery, Merseyside Maritime Museum, International Slave Museum and Beatles Museum, Beatles Story. There are also shops, restaurants and hotels. As part of the Liverpool Maritime Mercantile City, the site has been inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

Albert Dock was built in 1846 and it was then the first building made entirely of iron, brick and stone. Due to the lack of wood, it was the first non-flammable warehouse complex in the world. During the uprising, Albert Dock was also distinguished by an innovative system of loading and unloading of goods at that time, which took place directly from ships to warehouses and vice versa. They were also the first place where hydraulic cranes were used.
