Liverpool

UK travel information



The European Capital of Culture for 2008, Liverpool is known the world over as a port, a first class football team, and of course, for The Beatles. There can't be any other city that attracts so many tourists because of a four-piece band from 40 years ago, but it remains a major reason for visiting the city.

Liverpool hotels

You can still take the ‘Magical Mystery Tour' around the Beatles related sites in the city, on board the brightly painted bus used by the band in the film of the same name. The Beatles Story Museum , on the banks of the river is the starting place for this, but also draws people to the newly regenerated areas around the docks. Modern shops and apartments are replacing dark and grubby warehouses, and other attractions such as the Tate Liverpool are providing an ultra modern feel to the 800 year old city.

The Cavern Club, 10 Matthew Street, Liverpool L2 6RE (0151) 236 1965
The Cavern Club is billed as ‘the most famous Club in the World’ and it’s easy to understand why.
Opened in 1957 as a jazz club, the Cavern quickly turned to ‘skiffle music’ and one of the first groups booked to perform this new craze was ‘The Quarrymen Skiffle Group’; a band fronted by John Lennon. Now the stuff of legend, the Cavern first hosted the Beatles on their return from Hamburg in February 1961. The group went on to become a club favourite and global phenomenon.
Open daily, the Cavern is now a place of homage for many music fans.
