The Beatles Story, Liverpool

The Beatles Story, Liverpool (must see)

Situated in Albert Dock, the Beatles Story is a museum where you can get in touch with the very beginning of the band's history, starting in the late 1950s. A large amount of exhibition space is dedicated exclusively to the band and its four young lads. Your themed adventure will start with audio guides narrated by Paul McCartney, where he tells you how he first met John Lennon, and by Julia Lennon, who discloses the “Living History” of the band. You'll follow the Beatles in their hometown, to Germany and the Star Club, back to Liverpool in the famous Cavern Club and the next stops: London, USA and USSR. In addition, you can visit the "Going Solo" halls, the interactive Discovery Zone, FAB4STORE-1 with a multitude of souvenirs and merchandise for you and your family, the specially-designed Starbucks Coffeehouse and even see some of the band's original instruments.

Why You Should Visit:
However expensive, the place is tastefully laid out and very well organized, and the admission fee does include a multi-lingual headset which adds quality to the visit.

Tip:
It can be difficult to get tickets on the day, so if you are planning to go then it would really be worthwhile booking online (that way, you also avoid queueing). Cheaper tickets available if you search the web for discounts/vouchers.

Opening Hours:
Daily: 10am-6pm (subject to change – check online before you visit)
