This is a complex of dock buildings and warehouses that was opened in 1846 by Prince Albert, and was the first structure in Britain to be built from cast iron, brick and stone, with no structural wood. It was also the first dock to allow ships to load and unload directly from the warehouses, using the world's first hydraulic cranes.

The Royal Albert Dock is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site that encompasses the Pier Head and forms one of the most iconic waterfronts in the world. It is also home to some of the best museums, galleries, restaurants, bars and shops in the city.
