Beatles Days Out In Liverpool: The Top Places You Should Visit

There are many reasons why you should visit Liverpool, arguably the best of all, because it is home to one of the world’s biggest and most celebrated bands, The Beatles.

You can visit many incredible sights and attractions. We have compiled this guide of the best Beatles attractions in Liverpool to help you get the most out of your time in the city as a fan of the Fab Four.

The Beatles Statues At Pier Head

Pier Head, Liverpool L3 1BY

First brought to Pier Head in 2015, the band’s life-size bronze statues were commissioned and donated by the Cavern Club’s managing director. These stunning statues immortalise the moment before everything changed when they left the city and went on to create a long-lasting musical legacy. 

Look for the small details like the acorns in John Lennon’s hand made from casts of acorns found beside the Dakota Building, the same building where he was shot in 1980, the Sanskrit on George’s belt and the L8, the postcode of where Ringo used to live on the sole of his shoe.

The Beatles Story, Royal Albert Dock

Royal Albert Dock, Liverpool L3 4AD

Located in Liverpool, Albert Dock is the most crucial attraction devoted to The Beatles. The Beatles Story chronicles the band’s career. You can listen to hits while looking around the city’s replicas of key Beatles locations.

There is also an incredible collection of memorabilia, rare album sleeves, original instruments and clothing. Julia Lennon, John’s sister, narrates the audio guide. We think this is the best Beatles museum in Liverpool.

Mathew Street is a vibrant part of Liverpool’s city centre and is a great place for fans of The Beatles to visit. The other main museum dedicated to The Beatles, The Liverpool Beatles Museum, is also home to the Cavern Club, the iconic venue, which is why it is often referred to as Cavern Quarter. This is where the Beatles would play in the earliest days and where Brian Epstein discovered them.

Liverpool Beatles Museum features many personal items from Pete Besst’s collection and is one of the most extensive exhibitions in the world.

Casbah Coffee Club

8 Hayman’s Grn, L12 7JG

Without dismissing the importance of The Cavern Club, Casbah Coffee Club is just as crucial to its inception as a band. Even Sir Paul McCartney considered it to be the place where it all started.

What sets the Casbah Coffee Club apart is it has a less commercial feel and is more authentic.

Strawberry Field

Beaconsfield Road, L25 6EJ

The place the classic Strawberry Fields Forever is named after was a children’s home run by the Salvation Army when John lived with his uncle and aunt nearby. John apparently had fond memories of attending the summer garden parties held there when he was young.

Although the home is no longer there, there is a visitor exhibition centre, shop and café. There are spaces to wander, sit, and think, but it’s the Imagine piano many people would be interested in.
