For any fan of the group, the trip to the Beatles’ hometown of Liverpool is almost like a holy pilgrimage. This is where it all began, the hometown of four boys who wrote Rock’n’Roll history. In this article, we wanted to discuss the best spots in Liverpool, which have historic and cultural significance for the fans.
THE BEATLES STORY ON THE ALBERT DOCK
The most notable attraction for any fan is ‘The Beatles Story’ located on the Albert Dock. This is an amazing collection of memorabilia, visuals and in general, probably the best homage to the band. The exhibits will take you from the humble beginning of the group to worldwide success. This place is full of important items from the history of the group, such as Brian Epstein’s cashmere coat.
THE MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR
Once you’re done there, you can move on to the Magical Mystery Tour. This is a bus route that will take you to the places that influenced the history of the Beatles. For instance, this bus will take you to Penny Lane and Strawberry Fields. This is such an amazing experience that we recommend you to fully charge your digital cameras or cellphones. You can actually enter the Strawberry Fields, and check out the iconic red gates in person. You can also take a stroll around a beautiful garden.
Alternatively, you can also book Liverpool Cycle Tours and reach all of these destinations by bike. This is a more environmentally friendly way to visit all the spots.
If you’re particularly fascinated with the McCartney and Lennon duo, you should also check out the tour that takes you through Mendips and 20 Forthlin Road. This is the place where the fabulous four first met and practiced their songs.
OTHER “BEATLES” PLACES IN LIVERPOOL TO SEE
While visiting Liverpool, Beatles fans should also check out the renowned cellar which has hosted the band many times. Most notably, the first live Beatles performance was here, in 1961. This is The Cavern Club, still a functioning musical center of Liverpool. You can head over to this bar and have a good time listening to your favorite songs. There are many other bars and pubs on Mathew Street, which is a musical area in Liverpool. The street also features the Liverpool Beatles Museum, an important place for any fan of the group. It features over 300 items from the Beatles’ history, especially from their early days. There are many important artifacts from the days of their worldwide fame as well.
A “BEATLES” HOTEL IN LIVERPOOL
To get the most out of your experience, you should stay at the Hard Days Night Hotel. It is probably the best accommodation inspired by the band. Some of the rooms are modeled after John and Paul’s rooms. When you’re alone in your hotel suite, you can pass free time by playing Mason Slots. You can stay in these rooms and dine at the restaurant, which is located on the ground floor. The eating space is also modeled after the famous band. On the walls, there are famous artworks related to the Beatles.
If you’re crazy about the band, you should visit Liverpool during International Beatleweek. This event usually takes place in August. Fans from all around the world come to Liverpool to celebrate the Beatles.
