Liverpool Excursions & Tours: Welcome to the award-winning The Beatles Story, the world's largest permanent exhibition purely devoted to the lives and times of The Beatles. Located in the Fab Four's hometown of Liverpool on the stunning UNESCO World heritage site at the Albert Dock, The Beatles Story takes visitors on an atmospheric journey through the lives, times, culture and music of The Beatles.
Join us on a magical history tour and see how four young lads from Liverpool were propelled to the dizzy heights of worldwide fame and fortune to become the greatest band of all time – from their Liverpool childhood, through the early days of the band, to world domination and on to their solo careers. Find out how the Fab Four met, go behind the scenes at the famous Abbey Road Studios and take an underwater trip on the Yellow Submarine!
Hang out at the Casbah Coffee Club or explore the stunning replica of the Cavern Club. With a rolling programme of other special exhibitions, you can visit time and time again and always discover something new.
Listen to The Beatles story unfold through our 'Living History' audio guides available in ten different languages and beautifully narrated by John Lennon's sister, Julia.
