Itinerary and timings you can choose your own starting time
10:00am The fully guided walking tour starts close to the Mersey Ferry Cruise Terminal with a fabulous photo opportunity of the brand new larger than life statues of the Beatles in front of Liverpool’s Liver & Cunard Buildings with lots of shipping links including the Titanic.
You will meet your local guide who after introducing the day and a waterfront walk including selfies of the new Beatles statues they will take you to the Maritime Museum and the Royal Albert Dock passing the Billy Fury Statue. You will then enjoy a guided walk through the World Heritage Site to see Liverpool Town Hall and the Eleanor Rigby & Cilla Black statues on Mathew Street and visit the world famous Cavern Club where the entrance is included as a part of the tour. You now have time for lunch (at own expense) and buying souvenirs if desired.
12:30 noon You then board your private transport and your local tour guide and Beatles expert will show you the city including the newly generated shopping and retail area called Liverpool One, an area cleared with firebombs during the blitz in WW2 in May 1941. You'll see how this vibrant city has re-emerged from the ashes and see the Georgian Quarter and Chinatown and pass the schools and colleges the band attended and take photos outside the world's 5th largest cathedral, Liverpool Anglican where Paul McCartney was auditioned in 1953 as a chorister.
You will then continue in your luxury licensed transport on the same route that the boys took from school to Penny Lane in the 1960's - this allows you to explore the suburbs and enjoy the tour in the most authentic way possible. See the Strawberry Field Gates and take photos outside John Lennon's childhood home 'Mendips' & Paul McCartney's childhood homes. (which you can not do on most other tours) before arriving back in central Liverpool at Liverpool One opposite the Royal Albert Dock, which is 10 minutes walk away from the Cruise Terminal. For those keen to shop, Liverpool One is a brand new billion pound retail and leisure area with lots of places to buy food and souvenirs.
15:30 approx tour finishes in Liverpool One opposite the Albert Dock only a few minutes from the Cruise Terminal.
