Steam on the Dock

Added to planner Add to planner

Steam on the Dock returns!

Steam on the Dock is returning to The Albert Dock with over 30 steam engines, boats and even a train making the Dock their home this May.

Families and steam enthusiasts are guaranteed a free, fun-packed weekend of toots and whistles. 

Steam tug Kerne, a stunning, Titanic-era steamship, will make her Steam on the Dock debut. Built in 1912, Kerne has a long history with Liverpool, in 1971 becoming the last coal-fired steamer to work on the Mersey. Since then she has been saved from scrap and preserved as an operational steamship, and is now the last remaining Naval, coal-fired steamship to have seen service in two world wars, still in operation today.

At 1pm and 3pm both days, visitors will be treated to a steam showcase around Salthouse Dock, which will include a cavalry of steam engines, traditional brewer’s dray cart and shire horses. This year’s festival will also welcome even more land-based engines and miniatures to the Dock than ever before, a variety of classic steam narrowboats courtesy of the Steam Boat Association, and a historic fairground organ.  

Mattel Play! Liverpool will be joining in on the celebration, with free story times with none other than The Fat Controller inside the attraction on The Colonnades, with special performances from his mischievous sidekicks, Rusty and Dusty!

Back on dry land, Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland Railways will be returning, bringing along Palmerston, a fully operational steam train, which will shuttle visitors up and down a track for a ride along Hartley Quay. Built in 1864, the beautiful Palmerston was also once deemed beyond repair, but thanks to a team of devotees and a long restoration, re-entered service in 1993, and promises to delight visitors to Steam on the Dock.
