Penny Lane, Strawberry Fields – visit these famous Liverpool sights your own way on an independent day trip from London. Everything’s arranged for you: return rail tickets, entry to the Beatles Story, a Magical Mystery Tour and a Liverpool city map and information booklet. The rest is up to you!
Your day starts with a relaxing train journey to the historic city of Liverpool, European Capital of Culture in 2008. Arriving at Liverpool Lime Street, you’ll have time to explore this Victorian city, perhaps taking a stroll along the stunningly refurbished Albert Dock Complex housing the Merseyside Maritime Museum and Tate Liverpool art gallery.
Your tour includes entry to the Beatles Story, where you can re-live the Fab Four’s meteoric rise to fame. Your visit takes you from the cobbles of Matthew Street and the Cavern, through the hysteria of Beatlemania to the final live performance on the Apple rooftop and beyond!
The Cavern Quarter is a vibrant city center area and the focus of Beatle history. There’s the famous Cavern Club, where the lads played 292 times, and the pubs where they drank during the early 1960s.
Options for lunch in Liverpool are many and varied, with top-quality bars, restaurants and cafes in the city center.
In the afternoon your Magical Mystery Tour is waiting to take you away! This two-hour tour takes you round all the landmarks in the lives of the Fab Four, including their homes, schools and birthplaces, Penny Lane, Strawberry Fields and many other significant spots.
