  3. 10 Places Every Beatles Fan Should Visit

10 Places Every Beatles Fan Should Visit

If there’s one thing Liverpool is known for (other than football), it’s The Beatles. The Fab Four left a legacy that shaped the face of popular music forever, and what better place to soak up the eclectic cultural and historical sights than in their own hometown?

From the inspiration behind some of their greatest hits and Beatles themed hotels to tours of their childhood homes and the place where it all began, here is a selection of our top 10 must-see Beatles landmarks in Liverpool.


The Beatles Story, Albert Dock

If you're making a pilgrimage to hometown of John, Paul, George and Ringo, this is an attraction not to be missed. Situated on Liverpool's Albert Dock, the Beatles Story exhibition includes iconic memorabilia including the original Strawberry Fields gate, and replicas of many of The Beatles' most famous locations such as The Cavern Club and Abbey Road studios. 


Strawberry Field

Currently being renovated by the Salvation Army, the grounds of this rural site which inspired the mystical 1967 hit will soon be opened to the public for the first time, as well as a new exhibition centre and training facility for young people.

Penny Lane

Beneath the (sometimes blue) suburban skies, Penny Lane is situated in the South of the city and boasts a lively scene inhabited by a number of trendy wine bars, restaurants and B&Bs. You can even visit the iconic Penny Lane Barber Shop as referenced in The Beatles 1960s hit.

Caspah Coffee Club

Located in the West Derby area, iconic 1960s rock and roll music venue Caspah Coffee Club was where it all began for The Beatles.


John Lennon's Childhood Home

Based on Menlove Avenue in Allerton, the 'Mendips' is a time capsule for the place where John Lennon grew up, bought his first guitars and wrote some of the Beatles’ world-famous songs. The 1930s semi remained John's childhood home until he was 22 and is now a Grade II listed building as part of the National Trust. Tours must be booked in advance.

Paul McCartney's Childhood Home

Labelled by the National Trust as "the birthplace of the Beatles", this Grade II listed building was home to a young Paul McCartney before he rose to fame. Based in Allerton, the terraced house has been meticulously restored with identical items of furniture to replicate the home that Paul would recognise from his younger years. Book in advance to avoid disappointment.

Cavern Club Liverpool, Mathew Street

Attracting an estimated 800,000 visitors a year, the legendary Cavern Club in Mathew Street is where the Fab Four shot to fame in the 1960s.


Eleanor Rigby's Grave

Made famous by the award-winning song, Eleanor Rigby's Grave can be found in St Peter’s churchyard in Woolton. Located in the same place where Paul McCartney first met John Lennon at a church fete, this iconic headstone is a popular landmark for Beatles fans visiting Liverpool. 


Hard Days Night Hotel

This 'Fab Four' star hotel sits adjacent to the Cavern Club and is a hotspot for Beatles fans, art lovers, and food lovers alike. Housed in the magnificent Grade II listed buildings dating back to 1884, this beautifully restored hotel offers luxurious accommodation and is elegantly furnished with specially commissioned Beatles-inspired artwork adorning the walls.


Magical Mystery Tour

Step aboard the Magical Mystery Tour bus for a fun and fascinating journey of the Beatle's hometown. Starting at the Albert Dock, the psychedelic tour bus visits a number of iconic landmarks, including all four of the Beatle's childhood homes, and finishes at the legendary Cavern Club where you can enjoy live music every afternoon from the Cavern’s resident musicians. Tour tickets also include free general admission to the Cavern Club on the evening of your tour date. 


Whether you're a local Liverpudlian or a tourist looking to explore the city, there's plenty to see and do in this musical metropolitan. Before booking your tickets, why not brush up on your knowledge of the Beatles' most iconic phrases in this pocket-sized book?
