Situated in the Cavern Quarter at the heart of the city. 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.

Everyone (old enough) should spend a night on Mathew Street. There are so many pubs and bars to choose from, you're guaranteed a great night out! My personal favourites are the Revolution (for cocktails), Flanagan's (for the craic) and of course The Cavern (you need a reason?!) And don't forget to get your picture with the John Lennon statue, for... More

Lots and lots of pubs, Saturday night will see Police and stewards mixing it together but don't be afraid!! We visited numerous bars and had a blast, body swerve both the basement 80's bars (tacky and not worth it), visit Coyote's for the mental DJ and karaoke - what a laugh!! Seriously - there are lots of live bands, DJ's... More

Plenty of places to eat or grab a pint! A "must-do" for Beatles fans! Include a stop at the Cavern Club!

Sadly, the Cavern Club, where the Beatles once sang, no longer exists, at least not on its original site. But Mathew Street remains a Mecca for visitors to the city that gave the world pop music and rightly so. There is still much to see and do here, including excellent shopping, bars, restaurants and a commemorative wall to Liverpool's musical... More

Mathew street is totally amazing, it's packed full of character, there is bar after bar and everything from live bands to disco music.. If it's entertainment you want this is the street to be. During the day it's family orientated, at night I wouldn't recommend taking the children. There are locals, stag and hen parties, so many nationalities and all... More
