Liverpool & the Beatles
Famously known as the home of ‘The Beatles’ the city of Liverpool is a popular drawcard for holiday makers visiting England. There’s inner city guided walking tours that retell the stories of John Lennon’s youth and provide photo opportunities at a bunch of ‘now iconic’ landmarks relevant to the fab four. The ‘Cavern Club’ where the Beatles played 292 times from 1961-63 is the cradle of British Pop music and still operational today. Good to know if you and your friends fancy getting footloose for an evening.
Fact; The song ‘Penny Lane’ written by Sir Paul McCartney is a real street in Liverpool.
