Princes Dock was a railway station on the Liverpool Overhead Railway, adjacent to the dock of the same name.

It was opened on 6 March 1893 by the Marquis of Salisbury.

The station closed, on 13 March 1941, due to extensive damage during the World War II Blitz.[1] No evidence of this station remains.[2]
