The Beatles’ Childhood Homes
The National Trust tour is the only way to get inside the houses where John Lennon and Paul McCartney grew up.
Each tour is limited to 15 people so booking well in advance is required. After all, you are wandering around what used to be someone’s home, and a relatively modest home at that.
The Beatles Story
The Beatles are probably Liverpool’s most famous export and it stands to reason that the city has quite a few attractions paying tribute to John, Paul, George and Ringo.
The Beatles Story is the straight-up Beatles museum where you’ll find authentic memorabilia like handwritten lyrics, outfits, instruments and Lennon’s glasses.
However, there’s more to it than that. This is the largest permanent Beatles exhibition in the world and key locations in the band’s history have been recreated.
The Cavern Club
It may be a while since The Beatles graced the stage of The Cavern Club but you’ll still find live music played there every day.
Light displays along Mathew Street featuring the club logo illuminate the way to one of the world’s most famous clubs – at least when it’s dark, anyway.
The Cavern Club hasn’t just become a museum. For £5 entry you can enjoy live music on the front stage with its famed arches.
Liverpool Cathedral is the biggest in the country but age-wise, it’s a baby. No medieval architecture here; the cathedral was designed by Giles Gilbert Scott and built between 1904 and 1978.
Liverpool Football Club Stadium Tour
Can I kick it? No you can’t. But with a Liverpool Football Club stadium tour fans can walk through the players tunnel. However, that’s as close as you’ll get to playing on the hallowed pitch.
The Anfield stadium tours allow you to walk in the footsteps of your favourite players and people with a visit to the home team dressing room and a trip to the Dugout where you can sit in Klopp’s seat for a photo opportunity.
Liverpool’s Maritime Museum is part of the National Museums Liverpool collection. As one of the country’s major ports, seafaring and shipping has played an important part in the city’s history. Discover more about it at the Royal Albert Dock where the Maritime Museum is located.
Museum of Liverpool
The Museum of Liverpool on Pier Head is an eclectic and diverse collection of Liverpool stuff and stories. Part of the National Museums Liverpool group, you’ll find everything from one of Villanelle’s stylish costumes from Killing Eve (as worn by local actress Jodie Comer) to a carriage from Liverpool’s overhead railway which you can climb aboard.
Royal Liver Building 360 Tour
If you have a head for heights you can ascend to the tenth floor of the Royal Liver Building and then climb 124 steps to the 15th floor and look out over Liverpool. The Royal Liver Building 360 tour is a chance to see the city from the top of one of the Three Graces, right up where the Liver Birds perch.
