Steam on the Dock

Next month sees the return of Albert Dock’s popular Steam on the Dock event – one of the UK’s only inner-city steam rallies

Powering into the Dock on May 12-13, Steam on the Dock will showcase a whole host of authentic steam engines, both land and water-based, from dinky miniatures to huge, towering lorries. See these shiny, grand machines of the industrial age up close and in full steam, speak to their friendly and devoted owners who’ve spent years restoring and caring for them, find out how they tick, and soak in the atmosphere of this lively celebration on Liverpool’s iconic waterfront.

Clare Rawlinson, marketing manager of Albert Dock Liverpool, says: “Now in its third year, Steam on the Dock is one of our favourite events here at the Dock simply because it resonates with so many of our visitors – from little children to grandparents, steam buffs to novices, you literally see their faces light up when they get to experience the sights, sounds and smells of a steam engine.

“We promise visitors a great day out for the whole family and another perfect excuse to discover and explore Albert Dock a little bit more, including our attractions like Tate Liverpool, Merseyside Maritime Museum and the Beatles Story.”
