Royal Albert Dock
If you’re a bit of a history buff then the Royal Albert Dock should be on your ‘must-see’ list. The first structure in Britain to be built from cast iron, brick and stone, it was also the first non-combustible warehouse system in the world.
It is part of UNESCO’s designated World Heritage Maritime Mercantile City and is home to the largest single collection of Grade I listed buildings anywhere in the UK.
It is visually stunning and hosts plenty of events and exhibitions including world-class galleries and music festivals.
On the 6th April 2019, Aintree Racecourse will host the world famous Grand National. 150,000 racing fans will be in attendance with a further 600m tuning in from around the world.
The big race forms part of the festival, which runs over three days. Always a huge day out if you fancy getting all dressed up and having a great time with friends and family, you could do a whole lot worse than a day at the races.
