You can’t visit Liverpool without dedicating any time to the Beatles. As one of the most famous – if not the most famous – bands in the world, Beatles made their mark not only on music, but also on pop culture. The Beatles Story Exhibition/Museum is renowned for its comprehensive collection of photos, interviews and real-life replicas of recording studios and more. Get to know Paul, Ringo, John and George and find out more about the legendary band and its influence. 


Enjoy the full Beatles experience by booking a tour, where you’ll get to see all the locations mentioned in their most iconic songs. 

Royal Albert Dock

The two points of interest mentioned above are very close to each other. Even better, they’re in the same location! The Royal Albert Dock is a complex of buildings where you’ll not only find both Tate Liverpool and the Beatles Story Exhibition/Museum, but also the Merseyside Maritime Museum and an abundance of bars, restaurants and cafes. It’s also the first structure in the country to be built from cast iron, so you can admire the shops within and the beauty of its exterior, as well.  


Since you’ll be close to the docks, why not book a River Cruise tour? Discover the beauty of Liverpool through its waters and make unforgettable memories. 

Sefton Park, together with Palm House

While you’re in Liverpool, don’t miss the beautiful landscapes and greenery you can only find in the North West of England. One of these beautiful city oases can be found in Sefton Park – a calming retreat in the south of Liverpool, where you can stroll and breathe some fresh air. Once you’re there, don’t miss a visit to the Palm House, a conservatory opened in 1896, that isn’t only an amazing location to visit, but also a place that holds events and concerts.  

Museum of Liverpool

Through the museum's collections, you’ll explore the fascinating background of Liverpool and its people, as well as discover the city’s remarkable global significance. You should also take note of the impressive architecture of the museum’s building, which used to be the largest newly-built national museum in the United Kingdom.
