While their music may not interest everybody, no-one can deny the impact that The Beatles have had on the music scene. Since their inception and small-time gigs at The Cavern Club to worldwide fame and fans screaming at their feet, their career as a group and the subsequent solo careers are some of the most famous music stories ever known. The award-winning The Beatles Story can be found in the Albert Dock – a region, in itself, worth exploring. The interactive journey provides a comprehensive look at the career of The Beatles, from their first gigs as The Quarrymen right through to taking the world by storm.
As you walk through this fascinating attraction, you will see how four lads from Liverpool were catapulted into the bright lights of the big stage and the worldwide stardom that comes hand in hand.
The adventure begins at the Woolton Village Fete, where Paul met John for the first time. Imagine the conversations that would have helped cement their future and cast your eyes on the instruments that John used with his skiffle band before making the biggest career move of his life.
Make your way through the experience and stop by at a scale Casbah Coffee Club, where The Quarrymen played some of their live sets. The actual club used to be a rock and roll venue in the cellar of a home in West Derby, Liverpool and was helped to be painted and finished by the lads before heading on to larger venues. The cellar has been idolised in their memory and can still be visited to this day.
You will also find a recreated Cavern Club within the experience; the live venue that used to have a jazz-only policy but progressed to allow other genres on its stage. The actual club can still be found in Mathew Street if you fancied heading over there afterwards, where you can be part of the epic atmosphere that continues to thrive today.
Chill out in the psychedelic era, when The Beatles created one of their most famous albums. Nowadays, the vinyl LP of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band is worth thousands if preserved in perfect condition, including all of the stickers if unused.
Take a look at where the lads went after their split, the solo careers they embarked upon and in two cases, their untimely demise. Gain more insight into the notorious murder of John Lennon outside The Dakota Building, New York in 1980.
Following your tour, head over to the Mersey Ferries terminal, where The Beatles Story Pier Head can be found. After all, what’s the point in seeing one part of the experience without the other? Here you will find The Discovery Zone – perfect for families and kids, as well as plenty of other exhibitions and the Fab4D Experience to delight you.
Whether you’re hoping for a little nostalgia or you’re introducing The Beatles to younger generations, The Beatles Story is an absolute must. Check out the Travelodge hotels in Liverpool and enjoy this incredible duo site experience.
