What is it? The city’s historic heart – now a thriving leisure complex.
Why go? Liverpudlian history, culture and industry are synonymous with Royal Albert Dock. Some 40 percent of global trade passed through here at the beginning of the 19th century. Today, it’s the crown jewel of the Unesco World Heritage waterfront and draws more than six million visitors a year. There’s something to discover in each repurposed warehouse, from cultural giants such as Tate Liverpool and The Beatles Story to an array of tempting cafés, bars, boutiques and restaurants.
