Description
Your day starts with a relaxing train journey to the historic city of Liverpool, European Capital of Culture in 2008. Arriving at Liverpool Lime Street, you'll have time to explore this Victorian city, perhaps taking a stroll along the stunningly refurbished Albert Dock Complex housing the Merseyside Maritime Museum and Tate Liverpool art gallery.

Your tour includes entry to the Beatles Story, where you can re-live the Fab Four's meteoric rise to fame. Your visit takes you from the cobbles of Matthew Street and the Cavern, through the hysteria of Beatlemania to the final live performance on the Apple rooftop and beyond!

The Cavern Quarter is a vibrant city center area and the focus of Beatle history. There's the famous Cavern Club, where the lads played 292 times, and the pubs where they drank during the early 1960s.

Options for lunch in Liverpool are many and varied, with top-quality bars, restaurants and cafes in the city center.

In the afternoon your Magical Mystery Tour is waiting to take you away! This two-hour tour takes you round all the landmarks in the lives of the Fab Four, including their homes, schools and birthplaces, Penny Lane, Strawberry Fields and many other significant spots.

We book the first class train, I had done this tour before and I got a real good breakfast and diner, because it was the weekend they dont serve the breakfast or diner, instead they gave out coffe and muffins and not even good muffins dissapointed about this, they should have that information when you are booking. I could have had something to eat before boarding. Not worth the upgrade. But the Beatles Story and the Magical Mystery tour was Great

Amazing tour,

Oh my gosh! What can I say about this tour????? FANTASTIC! Up super early, get on the tube, head to Euston Rail Station, and 2 1/2 hours later you are walking through the streets of Liverpool. The street signs are really easy to follow,,head to Albert Dock and you are at the Beatles Story, the best museum in the world for Beatles fans. The train gets to town around 9:30. It's about a 20 minute walk to the museum and then you will have a good 2-3 hours to see all there is, shop for souvenirs, and grab some lunch in their cafe. At 2:00, you board the bus for the Magical Mystery Tour...Penny Lane, Beatles childhood homes, Strawberry Field iron gates, and lastly, The Cavern on Mathew Street. You can actually sit an listen to performers in The Cavern as you sip a drink or grab a sandwich before you head back toward Lime Street Rail Station for the train ride home at 6:30. The William Gladstone pub is right across the street from the end of Mathew Street...super cheap fish and chips and really good. It's a fantastic tour to take. The day is filled with everything you would want to see of the Beatles and their hometown.

As a huge Beatles fan, I found this tour to be a once in a lifetime experience!! It was well organized and loaded with interesting info. The upgrade on the train to include meals was well worth it. Although it could be done on your own for much less, having the day all planned for a first visit to Liverpool was great!!

Absolute must to see and do even if not a diehard Beatles fan. A do-it yourself tour and a bit vague getting tickets and information at Euston but all ok in the end. Mersey Docks and the Beatles Exhibition fantastic..be prepared to spend a lot of time there. Magical Mystery Bus Tour great but VERY limited time at each location so be prepared to race around. Train takes a couple of hours either way so a very long day but SOOO worth it

Really enjoyed the Magical Mystery Tour. Informative guide, and stops at all the key Beatles places. Best of all was the Cavern Club. Lots of history and the live music was awesome.

Fun Beatles venue! Loved traveling on train. Wish more information made available to us about return trip, viator did not enclose any information in packet given to us at train station, no time printed on train tickets either.

BR-654504995 - First this booking start was from Euston train station at 650 am, which you needed to be 10-min early. No big deal, I was literally staying 5-10 minutes from the station. However, when I arrived at 0630 - I could not find the person responsible for the tour. Neither could the assistant from the Euston Station ticket booth. No one answered calls to the number on the voucher, and VIATOR does not have ANY immediate contact numbers listed on their website. I had FIRST CLASS SEATS. I WAS IN THE STATION. HOW MESSED UP IS IT THAT I HAD TO WATCH THE TRAIN LEAVE WITHOUT ME? I certainly couldn't afford to purchase train tickets without a tour discount. It would have been so much easier if the ticket vouchers were electronic, but they were not. Unfortunately, I feel that this will also fall on deaf ears. I guess thereis always a glitch occasionally, and I must be it this time.

My wishlist
