What You Can Expect

Beatles and Liverpool Rail Day Trip from London

The Cavern Club, Liverpool

Choose standard class or first class rail travel when you book. Then, on the day, leave central London by train in the early morning and travel to the historical city of Liverpool.

Enjoy the views of the picturesque English countryside during your roughly 2.5-hour journey. Then, on arrival at Liverpool’s Lime Street station, enjoy the day to explore the city sites associated with the Fab Four both independently and on a 2-hour guided Magical Mystery tour.

Perhaps start at the beautifully restored, UNESCO-listed Albert Dock complex on the banks of the fabled Mersey River. Enjoy the river views and amble around this stylish area, home to chic shops, vibrant restaurants and the Tate Liverpool art gallery and Merseyside Maritime Museum.

Stroll to the Liverpool Waterfront, and use your included entrance ticket to visit The Beatles Story, the world’s largest permanent exhibition devoted to this legendary band. Explore independently and relive the meteoric rise to fame of the four Liverpudlian lads — Paul McCartney, John Lennon, George Harrison and Ringo Starr — who changed the world and music with their catchy pop tunes.

Learn about their Liverpool childhoods, step inside a replica of the Cavern Club where they first found local fame, go behind the scenes at their Abbey Road studios, relive their last live performance on Apple’s rooftop and much more.



When you feel hungry, stop for lunch (own expense) at any of the city’s eclectic restaurants, bars or cafes. Then, stroll to the meeting point for your 2-hour afternoon Magical Mystery tour of Beatles-associated sights.

Hop into your comfortable coach and be introduced to places once frequented by the young band. Pass the famous Cavern Club where they played 292 times; see their schools and birthplaces; and pause at sites celebrated in songs such as Penny Lane and Strawberry Fields Forever, all as your onboard guide recounts fun gossip and trivia.

When the time comes, catch your return train back to central London, where your trip concludes in the evening.

Fantastic day. We meet the tour rep. at the train station, she gave us our tickets and detailed instructions and off we went. We had plenty of free time between the Beatles Story and the Magical Mystery Tour. We loved the tour Penny Lane, stawberry fields ect. The Cavern was icing on the cake.

I LOVED this trip! My husband and I flew all the way from Las Vegas to London and Liverpool to have a Beatles-oriented trip. This tour was great because they help set the itinerary, get the tickets for you, but you are not beholden to a big tour group the entire day. It's great for people who like to have a skeleton of a trip planned and fill in the blanks with your own desired spots to see and experience.

Tour guide met us at Euston Station right on time and provided us everything we needed for a successful day trip. If you're a Beatles fan, this trip is worth it for the Magical Mystery Tour alone seeing each lad's childhood home, where John and Paul first met, The Cavern Club, and just the sites of Liverpool with an awesome guide was so much fun! The Beatles Story Museum is full of mostly replicas and just a history of the group, nothing too exciting if you already know everything about The Beatles. Timeline of events allows you to fully enjoy everything without feeling rushed.

Loved wandering through the museum, recalling fond memories from my youth. Marveled at how these four young men transformed the world in so many ways. Also loved seeing the sights of Liverpool and the places the Beatles grew up on the Magical Mystery Tour. Our guide was funny and informative.

Great trip but you need bigger maps. You can get them free from Liverpool so why not include them in the packet?
