Day Itinerary – The Beatles
Breakfast: 9:15am – Grab breakfast at Leaf on Bold Street. The tea specialists offer not just a delicious Full English but also vegetarian, vegan, pescatarian and lighter options too.
Magical Mystery Tour: 10:45am – Meet your guide at the Magical Mystery Tour ticket office: Anchor Courtyard, Albert Dock, Liverpool L3 4AS 10 minutes before tour departure time at 11am. Explore iconic parts of the Beatles’ journey, from childhood homes to Penny Lane to the famous Cavern Club, where the tour will drop you off.
Lunch: 1pm – Quick lunch at the Beatles-themed Fab 4 Café at the Pier Head.
Ferry across the Mersey: 2pm – Take the Dazzle ferry ‘cross the Mersey. Dazzled by Sir Peter Blake, the artist behind Sgt. Peppers just in time for the iconic album’s 50th anniversary. See the award-winning waterfront and its many sights. Go to the Pier Head terminal 15 minutes before the 2pm departure to pick up tickets. Upon leaving the ferry, make sure you stop to check out the brand new Beatles statues just seconds away from the terminal.
The Beatles Story: 3pm – Visit The Beatles Story, the multi award-winning attraction dedicated to the life and times of the Fab 4. See a replica of the Cavern Club, play the giant Beatles Piano and see never-before-seen photographs and memorabilia.
Free Time/Beatles’ Pubs: 4pm – Take a cab up to Liverpool’s remarkable Georgian Quarter. Whilst taking in the beauty of the architecture and the atmosphere around the Hope Street area, perhaps stop in Ye Cracke and The Philharmonic Dining Rooms, 2 favourites of The Beatles before their fame.
Dinner: 7pm – Visit Blakes restaurant located inside the Hard Day’s Night Hotel. Named after the same Sir Peter Blake behind Sgt. Peppers and the Dazzle Ferry, the artists’ pieces adorn the walls of the establishment. The traditional British restaurant offers contemporary dishes created from fresh, locally sourced produce.
After dinner drinks: 9pm onwards – If you’re not ready to retire to bed just yet, perhaps visit The Jacaranda; a venue The Beatles famously spent many a night in. The cocktail menu may not be something the fab four ordered from back in the day, but we can certainly vouch for giving it a try now.
