Liverpool Beatles Walk and Ticket to Ride Tour pays tribute to the band who shaped the face of popular culture across the world. Given the scale of The Beatles’ impact, it’s no surprise that millions of Beatlemaniacs make pilgrimage to Liverpool to trace the beginnings of The Fab Four’s legacy. If you are said Beatlemaniac, then this six-hour Beatles tour could be your Ticket to Ride.
Starting at the new Beatles statues on Canada Boulevard close to the iconic Liver building, you’ll learn how Liverpool gained its status as a World Heritage Site before moving on to the iconic Albert Docks where you’ll visit the Maritime Museum and learn more about the earliest years of John, Paul, George and Ringo.
From there you head into the city, through Liverpool One, past the Eleanor Rigby statue to the White Star, an unsuspecting Victorian pub which serves real ale and was the venue in which the band played their first gig. Over the course of the day, you’ll visit a number of Liverpool’s historic treasures that have influenced or been influenced by the band, including the famous Cavern Club.
After lunch, you’ll leave the city behind and journey into the suburbs to see the schools and colleges attended by the band members. Whizzing between locations in a luxury car, you’ll visit famous spots like Penny Lane and Strawberry Fields before rounding off the day with photos outside of The Beatles’ childhood homes.
At the end of this six-hour Beatles extravaganza, you’ll find yourself back at Liverpool One in the heart of the city centre where there are a ton of shops, cafes, restaurants and bars to enjoy. Immerse yourself in the early life of the band who changed the world and experience one of the most exciting cities in the UK with Liverpool Beatles Walk and Ticket to Ride Tour.
