In the mid-19th century Liverpool was one of the world’s greatest maritime cities, with more than 40% of all global trade passing through its docks.  Today it is still a cultural hub of the city, housing the largest single collection of Grade I listed buildings in the country.

Its traditional cobbled walkways can make it appear less accessible than it is, because alongside these all the buildings can be accessed via hard paths laid when the area was redeveloped in the 1980s.

Attractions include the Merseyside Maritime Museum, International Slavery Museum, Tate Liverpool, The Beatles Story and the Museum of Liverpool. All buildings have lifts, accessible toilets and hearing loops. There are 8 accessible car parking bays at Albert Dock and both Tate Liverpool and the Beatles Story offer free wheelchair hire.

See Albertdock.com for details.
