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.

You have less time than you think in Liverpool - so the early departure is worth it. The train ride was smooth, the Beatles Story is very well done - Magical Mystery bus tour was great! I recommend to any Beatles Fans!

As a Beatles fan, I must say this is definitively a great trip to do. The train was pretty fast to get there. If you have good weather forecast, i recommend to take the ferry, it is a pleasant activity there's a discount on ferry tours. Beatles story and magical mystery tour are two cool experiences.

Love this tour. The only thing that I do not understand is why a guide does not go to Liverpool with the group. I am pretty sure we will obtain more information. We did enjoy it since we are Beatles fan so this was a must for us.

This tour is a must for anyone who is a Beatles fan. It was definitely worth getting up early to catch the train to Liverpool. The tour rep met us at the station and gave us very detailed instructions for our self-guided tour. The first class rail travel was definitely the way to go as it set the scene for what was a sensational day. I learnt a lot about the Beatles at the museum that I didn't know previously and the tour of Liverpool where the Fab Four grew up and went to school was awesome. There was plenty of time after the tour to visit Mathew Street and enjoy some Beatles music and a drink in the Cavan Club before catching the train back to London.
This experience was the highlight of my trip!
