The awards showcase those businesses in the VisitEngland Visitor Attraction Quality Scheme that go the extra mile to provide a high-quality day out. This could be through a warm welcome, an engaging story, a delicious lunch or the overall visitor experience. Accolades are given for the following categories: Welcome, Best Told Story, Quality Food & Drink, Hidden Gem and Gold for overall winners.

The Old Dock Tour has been recognised as one of the UK’s ‘Hidden Gem’ and is being celebrated for its excellence within the visitor attraction sector.

Revealed during excavations of Liverpool ONE in 2001, the story of the world’s first commercial wet dock is explored on the Old Dock Tour. You will discover how a brave idea and an innovative feat of engineering shaped Liverpool’s destiny forever. The tour is part of The Heritage Trail at Liverpool ONE which takes visitors back in time discovering more than 300 years of Liverpool’s history.

The Old Dock guided tours are organised by National Museums Liverpool on behalf of Liverpool ONE.
