It was the first structure in UK to be built entirely of cast iron, brick and stone, and was open in July 1846 by Prince Albert. Much of it was badly damaged during World War II air raids. Built to accommodate sailing ships, the docks were closed in 1972. The refurbishment of Albert Dock began in 1983 and the official re-opening ceremony on May 1988 was performed by Prince Charles.
The Albert Dock houses three museums: The Beatles' Story, the Tate Liverpool and the Merseyside Maritime Museum. There is also a Holiday Inn hotel, over 30 office units, 115 luxury apartments with views of River Mersey and a dozen of restaurants, bars and cafes.

What can you find there? Well, try this lot:
If that is not enough for you, there are shops, cafes, pubs, restaurants, and all of this within a couple of blocks. You will probably need a couple of days to see it all. I had an afternoon, and I managed to do the Tate, some shopping and a pub. By that time my feet had had enough.
Talking of feet, much of the area is cobbled. You should most definitely not come here in heels, and even comfortable courts like I was wearing will not protect you for long. Stout walking shoes are recommended.
