My hubby and I grew up with the Beatles and truly loved the opportunity to see and learn so much. Our kids barely remember the Beatles and were not so impressed. Had our pictures taken with "Eleanor Rigby" on a bench out in the alley way.

Over priced, tired and lacking in magic. Would really not recommend this, past it's sell by date and lots of bits not working. Staff were so friendly and warm - really positive but ultimately felt rather ripped off.

This is a great experience, seeing the Beatles as people, musicians, individual artists and getting a better understanding of what made them what they were. Would have liked to hear their music more throughout. I loved the tribute room to John Lennon. It was so moving.

Well presented and great mock ups, particularly of the cavern- only thing missing was the smell of rotting fruit but it still brought a tear to my eye, wonderful memories! Very interesting information which clarified the events, only thing we really found impossible to believe was that it was Paul McCartney doing the commentary - it certainly didn't sound like... More

The presentation and story of the Beatles was very well documented and presented. It would have been good to have heard more of their music throughout the tour. Well worth a visit.

We grew up with the Beatles so there isn't much we don't know about them or have not seen already. There were some nice displays and memorabilia inside but nothing that really "wowed" us. We started out with the headsets on but it was a bit crowded and we lost interest in listening and took the headset off. The headset... More
