 The Albert Dock receives royal approval to be renamed The Royal Albert Dock Liverpool

Albert Dock Liverpool has been granted the prestigious title Royal in recognition of the pivotal role it continues to play in the city's fortunes.

The iconic destination attraction - which is located on Liverpool's UNESCO World Heritage Waterfront, and home to the largest group of Grade I listed buildings in the country - changes its name from today (June 6, 2018) to The Royal Albert Dock Liverpool. This honour acknowledges the high standards represented by Albert Dock and highlights the numerous current and former sovereigns who have recognised the importance of the Dock both for its historical and architectural significance and its place within Liverpool.
