The Beatles history

You simply cannot ignore all the Liverpool Beatle Mania.  There are so many places to see and interesting facts to learn about these music legends.  Missing out would be like visiting Graceland and not taking a tour through Elvis Presley’s home. 

Take a tour through Mendips.  This was the home in which John Lennon lived during his younger years between 1945 and 1963.  A guided tour will allow you access along with interesting information relating to John Lennon and The Beatles.

20 Forthlin Road is another important home to visit.  This was the home of Paul McCartney and has been fully restored to its 1950s appearance for an authentic tour experience.  Most tourists highly recommend visiting the homes of both John Lennon and Paul McCartney for a full and interesting experience along with a visit to The Beatles Story speciality museum.

True Beatles fans cannot miss out on the opportunity to visit the Casbah Coffee Club.  It was started back in 1959 and was one of the first places where John Lennon, Paul McCartney and George Harrison ever played.  In fact, prior to their first performance here, the owner said that she could only open the club once she was finished painting.  Eager as they were to get things started, the three, along with Ken Brown, helped her complete the painting.  The original designs are still on the walls today.
