With the release of ‘Eight Days a Week’, a film that documents the group’s rise to fame, it goes to show how love for the Fab Four is not going to fade anytime soon.
On your visit to Liverpool, as well as being able to take a world famous ‘Ferry across the Mersey’ or watch a match at LFC’s famous Anfield stadium, you can visit these top Beatles attractions.
The Beatles Story
Pilgrims to the city of Liverpool often make The Beatles Story their first port of call. Situated on the Liverpool Waterfront’s Albert Dock, where you can get a great view of the iconic Liver Birds, The Beatles Story is an award-winning museum that charts the success of the group and the rise of Beatlemania.
