“The transformation of the Kings Dock from a car park to a major tourist and leisure attraction has been one of our great success stories and has helped to fuel the Liverpool powerhouse. “Our iconic waterfront demands a world class offer and we have a masterplan to ensure that continues to happen at Kings Dock – so we continue to attract the biggest names in entertainment, the biggest brands in the conference sector and millions of tourists from around the world supporting thousands of jobs.”
Liverpool City Council

Situated along the River Mersey in Liverpool, King’s Dock underwent a substantial redevelopment in 2008, transforming a former dock into a versatile space that now encompasses leisure, residential, and conference facilities. This development, part of the Port of Liverpool, serves as a noteworthy example of brownfield regeneration. Among its offerings are the M&S Bank Arena, an Exhibition and Convention Centre spanning 38,000 sq ft, a 1,450-space multi-storey car park, and three hotels—all under the full freehold ownership of the City Council.

  • M&S Bank Arena Liverpool - The city's premier entertainment venue at Kings Dock
  • Exhibition Centre Liverpool is a state of the art, purpose built exhibition centre at Kings Dock
  • ACC Liverpool is a spectacular world class venue located on the banks of Liverpool’s world heritage waterfront.

The redevelopment of King’s Dock presents a tangible investment opportunity with national implications. The project focuses on the development of the remaining seven plots, collectively spanning 7.6 acres and owned by the Liverpool City Council. This initiative has the potential to impact Liverpool’s waterfront, influencing dock heritage and central visitor economy attractions. It seeks to establish international design and development standards, positioning itself as an exemplar project for the Council, aligning with place-making objectives and contributing to the delivery of new sustainable homes.
