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.

Although heavily geared towards associations with the Beatles (as is most of the city it appears) you don't have to be a fan to enjoy a trip here. We came "early doors" to beat the crowds and still had a lively and fun time in the White Star and The Grapes (see separate reviews).

Buzzing street full of history and at atmosphere. Lots of very individual places to eat an drink. It does get very busy at the weekend but just get carried away by the crowd.

If you are after a true feel of the city and a great night out then visit this lively street as there will be something to suit every taste. From traditional pubs offering folk music and traditional Liverpool songs, to 80's clubs and to venues with really good live bands. A great night out !

OK, if you have even the slightest interest in popular music, you cannot avoid coming here, it's an important place to have at least been near. But be aware it is awful.. Nasty, exploitative, an insult to any true Beatles fan. But that's not going to stop you visiting, and neither should it.. This negative review is just so you... More

We didn't like it here as it was very scruffy and full of homeless people lying on the pavement, begging.
