Built in 1846, the world’s first enclosed, non-combustible dock warehouse system has been developed into the beating heart of Liverpool’s characterful waterfront. It’s an irresistible mix of old architecture and cutting-edge thinking. Many of the Dock’s thriving museums, galleries, bars and restaurants are housed in converted warehouses with iron colonnades. The Dock also has the largest grouping of Grade I-listed buildings in Britain.
