Liverpool Beatles Walking Tour

You will explore some of the special places in Liverpool that the Beatles were emotionally connected to and frequented on their path to global fame in the 1960's on this 1 ½ hour Liverpool Beatles walking tour.

The locations visited on this tour are all in the central city, so the walking is easy and gently paced. Highlights include walking down Mathew Street where the world-famous Cavern Club is situated and opportunities to have selfies with John Lennon and Cilla Black by their statues.

Your Beatles Liverpool Walking Tour begins in Liverpool’s museum quarter. Here you will meet your local Beatles Guide outside the entrance to Liverpool’s Central Library on William Brown Street. If you arrive early for your tour you will have the opportunity to see inside the city’s amazing library. It recently underwent a multi-million-pound renovation. There are toilets inside and a cafe where you can grab a takeaway coffee before setting off on tour with your guide.

Liverpool Empire – This theatre is one of the city’s most iconic entertainment venues and has hosted many famous artists and acts over the years. In December 1965, the Beatles played their last ever concerts in Liverpool here. Our guide will bring the story of that day’s memorable events to life for you.

St. George’s Hall – This 19th-century neo-classic building dominates the museum quarter. On a January evening in 2008, Ringo Starr had a bird’s eye view over the city as he played drums on top of the roof of the building to ring in the start of Liverpool’s year as capital of culture. Hear more from your guide who was probably one of the thousands of people below enjoying the show!

Eleanor Rigby Statue – One of the Beatle’s most iconic songs. Eleanor Rigby is still an enigmatic figure in the annals of Beatles folklore – learn why and have a selfie beside Eleanor Rigby.

Mathew Street – you will take a leisurely stroll down Mathew Street where the legendary Cavern Club is situated. The Beatles played here 292 times in the 1960s. The street is pedestrianised today so our guide will help you to enjoy this magic place with its many Beatles associations and attractions, including statues to John Lennon and Cilla Black and the iconic Cavern Wall of Fame.

Liverpool Town Hall – This elegant Georgian building stands elegantly at the top of Castle Street. In 1964 the city council passed the resolution that confirmed the honor of Freeman of the City on the Beatles. If you are lucky we will be invited inside to see their names inscribed on the list of Honorary Freeman in the Entrance Hall.

Our tour continues and leads you down to Liverpool’s world-famous waterfront. Centred around the Pier Head you will find one of the city’s most photographed attractions. A statue of the Fab 4 strolling out towards the River Mersey. This Fab 4 ensemble was erected in 2015 and celebrates the 50th anniversary of when the Beatles last performed in Liverpool. They then headed off to conquer America and lead the British invasion over the pond!
