Princes Dock is part of the Port of Liverpool. It is the most southerly of the docks situated in the northern part of the Liverpool dock system, connected to Princes Half Tide Dock to the north. The dock is now in the buffer zone to one of Liverpool's World Heritage Sites.

Princes Dock was named after the Prince Regent. It opened on the day of the Prince Regent's coronation as George IV in 1821. Access to the southern half of the dock system was via George's Basin, George's Dock and into Canning Dock. In 1899, both George's Basin and George's Dock were filled in to create what is now the Pier Head.

Ferry services from Princes Dock finally ended in November 1981 when P&O Ferries closed their Liverpool - Belfast overnight service. The dock subsequently closed to shipping. Much of Princes Dock's wharfage and warehouse space has been replaced by three blocks of office accommodation along the river front, the 128-room Malmaison hotel and three apartment blocks (UK: blocks of flats). The dock was partially filled in to inland canal boat depths precluding deep water vessels and has been divided into two sections spanned by a pedestrian bridge that was designed by the Liverpool John Moores University Centre for Architectural Research and Consultancy Unit (CARCU).
