How To Find Us

By car

You’ll find brown tourist signposts to both ‘Liverpool waterfront’ and ‘Albert Dock’ from the M62; if you’re coming from Wirral via the M53, head northbound from Ellesmere Port, through the Wallasey (Kingsway) Tunnel. Merge onto Scotland Road as you leave, and turn right at the lights, following signs for ‘Liverpool waterfront’ or ‘Albert Dock’.

Visitors arriving on the A41 through Birkenhead should follows signs for the Queensway Tunnel, which will in turn signpost you to the Dock and waterfront.

You’ll find parking on site at the Albert Dock, plus supplementary car parks at both Liverpool ONE and ACC Liverpool. If parking at the Albert Dock, look out for the designated family car park signed as "Car Park B" (the barriered car park on Gower Street).

If you’re using sat nav, use the postcode L3 4AA.
