Liverpool’s Perfect Backdrop?

12TH June, 2020

Royal Albert Dock Liverpool has continued to welcome visitors through the Dock gates and around the Colonnades during lockdown, while also being the sunniest spring on record.

The Albert Dock estate sits on the UNESCO waterfront and city residents have been walking, jogging, cycling & even paddle boarding their way through it.

Walker’s can follow the Liverpool South Docks Wellbeing Walk designed by the Canal & River Trust which starts at the Toll House at the Albert Dock, follows King’s Parade adjacent to the River Mersey and past the Marina at Coburg Wharf, ending the 1.3 mile riverside walk. Sunset walks have proved ever-popular with the sun setting towards New Brighton and The Wirral peninsular.

Amateur & professional photographers have visited for decades with Dock and water panorama’s ever-changing with the light nights of summer. Not forgetting the new addition and must-have selfie with Liverpool Mountain by Ugo Rondinone, next to Tate Liverpool which will always guarantee likes.

The water within the wider Dock system including Albert, Canning & Salthouse is used by paddle boarders, kayakers and canal enthusiasts alike. Water flows through the city and the Albert Dock is that wellness break from the shops and streets of the city centre.

The Albert Dock is a safe, outdoor space. Whether you’re enjoying a summer ice cream Dockside, jogging around the Colonnades or cycling the Riverside path past the historic warehouses.

It is your perfect backdrop.
