Highlights
    What to Expect
    Choose standard class or first class rail travel when you book. Then, on the day, leave central London by train in the early morning and travel to the historical city of Liverpool.
    Enjoy the views of the picturesque English countryside during your roughly 2.5-hour journey. Then, on arrival at Liverpool’s Lime Street station, enjoy the day to explore the city sites associated with the Fab Four both independently and on a 2-hour guided Magical Mystery tour.
    Perhaps start at the beautifully restored, UNESCO-listed Albert Dock complex on the banks of the fabled Mersey River. Enjoy the river views and amble around this stylish area, home to chic shops, vibrant restaurants, and the Tate Liverpool art gallery and Merseyside Maritime Museum.
    Stroll to the Liverpool Waterfront, and use your included entrance ticket to visit The Beatles Story, the world’s largest permanent exhibition devoted to this legendary band. Explore independently and relive the meteoric rise to fame of the four Liverpudlian lads — Paul McCartney, John Lennon, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr — who changed the world and music with their catchy pop tunes.
    Learn about their Liverpool childhoods, step inside a replica of the Cavern Club where they first found local fame, go behind the scenes at their Abbey Road studios, relive their last live performance on Apple’s rooftop and much more.

When you feel hungry, stop for lunch (own expense) at any of the city’s eclectic restaurants, bars, or cafes. Then, stroll to the meeting point for your 2-hour afternoon Magical Mystery tour of Beatles-associated sights.
    Hop into your comfortable coach and be introduced to places once frequented by the young band. Pass the famous Cavern Club where they played 292 times; see their schools and birthplaces; and pause at sites celebrated in songs such as Penny Lane and Strawberry Fields Forever, all as your onboard guide recounts fun gossip and trivia.
    When the time comes, catch your return train back to central London, where your trip concludes in the evening.

    We totally enjoyed visiting Liverpool. My daughter is a huge Beatles fan and this was ideal! The highlight was visiting the Cavern with live entertainment. The only reason I did not give it a 5 is that our train back to London was canceled and...More

    the cavern was really the highlight. What would have really helped would have been to have the travel documents (train, tickets...) in an electronic form and not have to wait for the guide at the train station. We could have saved a 40 minutes sleep....More

    The tour company was very organized and the communication was spot on however for what it cost, there should have been more included.

    Hola Caryn, claro que puedes pasar la noche en Liverpool, de hecho sería lo indicado para poder disfrutar de The Cavern hasta el final. Al otro día tomas el tren de regreso a Londres. Un fuerte abrazo. Hugo.
