Penny Lane was of course made famous by The Beatles song of that name, released in 1967. John Lennon and Paul McCartney used to meet at Penny Lane to catch a bus into town. Their shared childhood experiences on the street inspired them to write the song, which was released as a double ‘A’ side with ‘Strawberry Fields Forever’ and later featured on the US album ‘Magical Mystery Tour.’

Many Beatles fans make pilgrimage to Penny Lane in the South of the city, to see the street. It’s still a lively area, with independent businesses lining the street. There’s even a barber’s shop in the same spot referenced in the song.

Pass By: St. Peter's Church, Woolton, Church Road Woolton, Liverpool L25 5JF England

The meeting took place at St Peter’s Church Hall on the evening of Saturday, 6th July 1957… Whilst waiting to play at the church dance that night, John Lennon and the other members of the Quarrymen Skiffle Group were introduced to the young Paul McCartney by a mutual friend.

Stop At: The Cavern Club, 10 Mathew Street, Liverpool L2 6RE England

The Cavern Club opened on 16 January 1957 as a jazz club, later becoming a centre of the rock and roll scene in Liverpool in the 1960s. The Beatles played at the club in their early years.

I was very disappointed in the service provided compared to the price I paid. I from the USA, and not familiar with Liverpool or London. I paid $800+ and thinking there would be people to provide guidance in support at the train station (both departing and arriving). We did not know where to go after departing the train at the stayed destination. The map provided was much to small for engine to see, much less read. This excursion got off to a very round and disappointing start. I found the attractions to be interesting and worthwhile. I strongly believe that a partial refund for the extremely poor service is in order.

Really fun trip. Well scheduled with some free time at the end, to either linger at the Cavern or explore Liverpool a bit.

The most memorable was the fact that for us to get there we had to pay a second time to make our ride by subway to Liverpool, then we had another (man and wife) who vouched for us that we belong on the trip as we had to show paperwork to get in. Fortunately, our name was listed, and we were able to complete trip, however seeing how we had already paid in advance we believe that you should re-pay us for the money we sent you in advance! Do the right thing and refund us, if not I will never stop sending warnings out to anyone how you cheated us !!!

We loved The Beatles Story and the Magical Mystery Tour. Our problem was the excessive free time between both of these events. Because of this, we did not get to see what both my husband and I were looking forward to the most .. The Cavern Club, because we had to catch the train back to London. I yhink you have to redistribute the free time at the end of the tour rather than in the middle. We believe we should get some kind of refund.

Our Magical Mystery Tour guide ( forgot his name, but his son, Jude, was with us), so Jude's dad, was excellent. He added personal magic, and was quite entertaining. We boarded the bus to the song Magical Mystery Tour, and then traveled down Penny Lane with the song playing. The Beatles Story was better than I expected, and I think it was done very well. My time in Liverpool was great!

It was a nightmare , missed the Beatle experience because I couldn’t print my tickets due to Wi Fi issues so print them out before trip, also you don’t get enough time to do everything listed Cavern was having a private party we couldn’t enter , couldn’t wait we would miss the train back to London, waste of time and money
