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.

A visit to Mathew Street is a must for any Beatles fan. Here you will see the Cavern Club, the Cavern Pub, a ton of Beatles souvenir shops, as well as a John Lennon statue and a few other Beatles-memorabilia items. It's a small street though and a lot more could be done with it, but still a great visit... More

It's a good place to go with friends. If I was a couple id probably avoid it at weekends. It attracts a crowd now including hen parties and stag parties which gives it a slightly tacky feel: Cavern bar is a must, and get a pic with the john Lennon statue

Used to be really nice a few years back, but now a little busy with large groups of birthday and hen celebrations.

Well I thought it was about time I looked at what this place has to offer, given that I've seen it change over the years lets say the last 20 omg! It still holds fond memories for visitors looking for a spot of Beatles heritage with the Cavern Club one of the few places that has not conformed to modern... More

I suppose for anyone visiting Liverpool, Mathew (with ONE "T") is an absolute essential. There is still quite a lot of pop history contained within this fairly short dog-legged street. The pubs where the Beatles used to pop into between sets at the Cavern Club are still there. The original Cavern is a giant transformer, although there is a (newer)... More

This as changed over the years and there is now alot more souvenir shops however on a weekend night the place fills up and the various pubs and clubs come alive. It's also home to the grapes which is where Pete price presides

Just walking onto Mathew Street you feel a great energy and vibe of bygone eras. You've got the Cavern Pub on the left and the Cavern on the right. There is a wall of fame where everyone who has appeared at the Cavern has their name. You really must visit Mathew Street and soak up the atmosphere of this world... More
