Liverpool's most famous street not only houses the Cavern Club but numerous references and connections to the "four lads who shook the world" and Liverpool's long musical heritage. There's shopping, bars and pubs, and come summer weekends the street is packed with partying locals and tourists. « less

Well this is a fantastic street if you are a fan of The Beatles! It just screamed of nostalgia. Between the grapes pub to the Cavern, a nice little area to walk through and lit up at night.

Mathew Street in central Liverpool was the home of The Cavern Club, where, as we know, The Beatles found fame. Stupidly, the original club - a basement basically - was knocked down in the 1980s (I know, I 'recovered' a brick from it). Since rebuilT, but in the wrong place, the rest of the street has taken on a Beatles... More

We went out to a few of the bars on Mathew Street most of which have some form of live music and most of which do not charge an entrance fee. It's the kind of place when sober that's a bit in your face but the atmosphere is great, everyone just out for a good time and people are so... More

Saw Mathew Street at night and in the daylight. It has an ambiance of the 60's. Well worth the visit to the Cavern Club. Which was awesome.

Very lively and noisy street but rather tatty. Paid £3 , I think ,to go in the Cavern .Good atmosphere and great live band but poor beer served in plastic glasses. The White Star pub is friendly and has a good selection of old photos etc. but toilets were virtually unusable at the time of our visit.
