  • Important Information

The fully guided walking tour starts close to the Mersey Ferry Cruise Terminal with a fabulous photo opportunity of the brand new larger than life statues of the Beatles in front of Liverpool’s Liver Building – where else in the world can you take a photo with such amazing icons?

You will meet your guide at 10:30am, followed by an 8-minute panoramic Beatles short film and introduction to Liverpool's famous waterfront. You will then move on to see Liverpool Town Hall and Eleanor Rigby Statue, before heading to Mathew Street and the world famous Cavern Club where the entrance is included as a part of the tour. You now have time for lunch (at own expense) and buying souvenirs if desired.

After lunch at approx. 12:30 noon you will see Jacaranda Pub followed by John's Birthplace, the schools and colleges the band attended and the Liverpool Cathedral - the world's 5th largest cathedral!

You will then take the same public bus route that the boys took from school to Penny Lane in the 1960's - this allows you to explore the suburbs and enjoy the tour in the most authentic way possible. See the Strawberry Field Gates and outside John Lennon's childhood home 'Mendips', before arriving back in central Liverpool at Liverpool One Bus station opposite the Albert Dock, which is 10 minutes walk away from the Cruise Terminal. For those keen to shop, Liverpool One is a brand new billion pound retail and leisure area with lots of places to buy food and souvenirs.

    Loved this walking/bus tour. The tour guide did a great job of sharing his enthusiasm for all things Beatles with the tour. I Amy have missed it but didn't realize we would be taking the bus after lunch to go out to drive by Penny Lane John's birth place. We did get to stop for a photo at Strawberry Field. would have liked a longer time seeing the stuff and less time for lunch. The Cavern club was a delight and fun to see. Might have been fun to end the tour there. Would definitely recommend doing this tour.
