Albert Dock, a complex of warehouses and docks on the Mersey River's banks, is Liverpool's most popular tourist attraction, with over 4 million visitors each year. 

The dock, designed by Jesse Hartley in 1846, opened its waters for sailing ships delivering brandy, cotton, and sugar from all over the world and remained operational until 1972. 

The neighbouring warehouses and buildings now hold flourishing art, music shows, museums, galleries, stores, bars, hotels, festivals, and even a pop-up floating cinema. Albert Dock perfectly illustrates how the city so skillfully blends the old with the new, the conventional with the modern.
