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

OK so we did not eat drink or use the facilities in any of the establishments but the street has certainly been well preserved/ refurbished. Its well worth a stroll down for photo opportunities and a peek inside the Cavern Club. While it is not the original and has been realigned and re-built with many of the original bricks.The new...

Reviewers complaining about how "touristy" this place is crack me up! Not sure what they expect a "tourist attraction" to be? If you're a Beatles Fan, it's a must see; go into the Cavern, grab a pint, and see the club where it all began (mostly). If you're a rock and roll fan, check out the impressive list of rock... More

Been there, done it and seen it - wouldn't be in a rush to go back. Some of the bars are filthy others are ok. It's a tiny street, not as expected. Hyped up with annoying street staff luring you into their bars offering free shots - when you get in the places are dead!!! Won't be going back in... More

Visitors who take one of the Fab Four themed tours, will learn that the group actually first performed publicly a few miles away from here, in Woolton. However, there is no denying the importance of Mathew Street in their rise to stardom. Sadly, the original Cavern Club, where the Beatles sang and Cilla Black looked after coats, is long gone...

Matthew Street was the home if the famous Cavern Club and now boasts a pretty authentic replica. Also well worth a visit is the Grapes, a pub used in the 60s by the Beatles and a host of musicians during their breaks from performing over the road in the Cavern. The street has good shops a a real "Liveroool" feel... More

You don't have to be a Beatles fan to appreciate this place, I think they were over rated but I get the nostalgia attached to this area Most of the bars here have music 7 day a week, most play the drab 4 stuff at some point but it's not thrown at you constantly It's not over prices, we had... More
