Heritage on the Dock returns to Albert Dock

Celebrate the unique heritage of Albert Dock and Liverpool’s world famous UNESCO World Heritage waterfront during Heritage on the Dock – a four-day event of free walks, talks, workshops and live music.

Take a Blue Badge guided heritage tour of Albert Dock, take a closer look at the vast array of marine life hidden under the waters with Lancashire Wildlife Trust, and hear about the colourful history of one of Liverpool’s master craftsmen at the Dock-based, Leather Satchel Co.

For those with sea legs, step aboard the famed steam ship, The Daniel “ Danny” Adamson, and meet the engineers, go behind the scenes of Liverpool’s very own Dazzle Ship, The Edmund Gardner, and hear fascinating tales about the historic Yarwood tug, France-Hayhurst.

Back on dry land, the Heritage on the Dock programme expands this year to include tours of the Royal Liver Building, where you will enjoy some of the most fantastic views of the city, and the Bascule Bridge, the gateway to Stanley Dock in the north, and a mechanical marvel. Join RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects) as they guide you through its new centre for architecture, RIBA North on Mann Island. Travel back in time aboard a classic bus from the Merseyside Transport Trust collection. And dig a little deeper into one of the finest examples of Art Deco architecture in the UK – the George’s Dock Building – headquarters and ventilation station for the Queensway Tunnel.

The waterfront’s flagship attractions, including Merseyside Maritime Museum, Tate Liverpool and Museum of Liverpool will also be adding to the programme with captivating talks, workshops and behind the scenes tours.
