No Beatles fan can leave Liverpool unturned, and a pilgrimage to the city where it all began for those four boys will be anything but dull. A true Beatles experience is up for grabs at every single turn you take.
The first stop must be The Beatles Store on the Albert Dock; the ultimate dedication to the Fab Four on the whole planet. Follow John, Paul, George and Ringo from their early beginnings of The Quarrymen, to the global Beatlemania that swept throughout the world, and beyond. Where else can you see the original Strawberry Fields gate, take an underwater trip on the Yellow Submarine and see Brian Epstein’s cashmere coat? Only at this award-winning exhibition, that’s where.
Hop on board the Magical Mystery Tour, a two-hour bus trip extravaganza that transports you through a Beatle-infused world as you travel to Liverpool’s various Beatles landmarks, like Penny Lane and Strawberry Fields. All we’re saying is get your phone or camera fully charged, or you’ll regret it.
For an extra special look inside lives of McCartney and Lennon, a combined escorted tour of Mendips and 20 Forthlin Road should not go amiss. This is your opportunity to explore where the Fab Four met, composed and rehearsed many of their earliest songs.
And of course, you can’t possibly come to Liverpool and not visit the legendary cellar that has seen seven incredible decades of music (including The Beatles first performance on 9th February 1961). The Cavern Club is still the beating heart of Liverpool Beatle-Mecca of Mathew Street, and will welcome you with warm arms (and live music) every day of the week.
Why not stop at where you sleep? The Beatles adventure must continue at Hard Days Night Hotel – the world’s only Beatles inspired hotel. Make like McCartney or Lennon in their own exclusive rooms, and step down to the Blakes Restaurant downstairs to dune under original Beatles artworks.
Plus making a trip to Liverpool during International Beatleweek every August has to be done. Bands and fans from over 40 countries descend on the city to celebrate the four lads that changed the world of music forever – the amazing memorabilia you’ll collect is a bonus.
We hope you enjoy the show!
