Impressed with this tour situated in the very picturesque Albert Dock. Headsets are available for timeline commentary throughout the tour. Loved the copy Mathews Street Cavern and Imagine memorabilia. I learnt a lot that I didn't know. A very interesting and informative visit. Well worth a visit

At first I wondered if we should really bother going in because for a family of four it was costing us around fifty pounds, and been a massive Beatles fan I knew that they wasn't anything that they could teach me. In that respect I was right, but so very very pleased we forked out the money and went inside.... More

This was the first place we visited in Liverpool and were not disappointed. It is a visually stunning tour starting from the fab fours early life right up to modern day. All Beatles fans need to visit. And there recreating of the Cavern Club is fantastic. Cannot say enough about how good this attraction is. Visit. It. Now.

Really enjoyed a trip here, a walk down memory lane! Very well presented and traces Beatles history from start to finish, well worth a visit - a little expensive to go in - very nice cafe at end and a souvenir shop.

When visiting Liverpool it feels obligatory to go. It was enjoyable but didn't have a wow factor. It felt quite cramped and would have benefited from more visual / film displays . The extension at the Pier Head was very limited.

The Beatles Story gives a great background of the Beatles history right from the beginning. It's set up really well including audio guides. Although in saying this, there is also a lot to read as well and it can become quite hard to take everything in. Unfortunately during summer there is also big groups going through the tour and it...

This was great and very interesting. I tended to be more interested in the early years as was too young prior to 1963 to remember much. The museum is well done and very interesting. One thing, this museum gets big groups to go early when it first opens to avoid the crowds.

I went there at about 3pm, firstly a confusing place to get into, went into the gift shop first which is the first entry as you walk in from the city end. Had headphoned audio commentry along, but was hard to hear over the loud music. I enjoyed the displays and an enormous amount of information provided, however was ruined... More

Loved every minute of it and to top off my day I met John Lennon's sister Julia, couldn't have been happier! She's the voice on the audio you listen to!
