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.

Fun times :)

Some bars you do have to pay to get in the cavern club you do at certain times and days depending on the musical. A very happy and lovely place to be. The weekends are busier... read more

This is a place steeped in history, not quite the experience of 'Sun studios' but a pilgrimage all the same for anyone who loves music and wants to see where the sixties first exploded and changed the musical landscape. Of course the emphasis is about the Beatles and the area is surrounded with Beatles based bars, and naturally places they... More

A great area for a walk and not just because of the Beatle link, it is a charming area full of old drinking houses which are lovely inside, untouched by time and the beer is good too.

Of course, if you're a Beatles fan, you should visit Matthew street and step where the boys walked and lived. Besides nearby Cavern Club and Cavern Pub, this area moves well on a Saturday night. When I visited there were separate clubs for 70's 80's and 90's music. Lots of people out and I had no troubles at all. Great... More

Not a long street but one that continues to ring in your ears long after you have moved on. Lots of memories of the 60's including the Cavern. The Beatles DNA is there..you can feel it. Brilliant!

A walk through the Cavern District has to be done if you are in Liverpool and a Beatles fan. An easy 10 minute walk from the Albert Docks area and you are in the middle of Beatles history. Walk past the site of the original Cavern Club, wall murals and statues of the Fab 4 and shop for memorabilia.
