Itinerary

Day One

Leaving the local area in the morning, we'll head towards Liverpool and our hotel. After check-in you'll have the rest of the evening free to relax and unwind before dinner is served.

Day Two

Today we take a trip into Liverpool and back in time to the rock 'n' roll days of the early 1960s. Our dedicated 'Beatles' guide will bring to life the world of Strawberry Fields and Penny Lane on a themed included coach tour.

See where John and Paul first met, where the quartet grew up, the poignant 'Eleanor Rigby' sculpture and other places connected with four of the 20th Century's most iconic figures, including a visit to the Cavern Club itself - one of Britain's most legendary music venues.

Afterwards, explore Liverpool under your own steam, or find out more about John, Paul, George and Ringo at The Beatles Story - a "magical history tour" that includes fascinating recreations of Abbey Road, the Casbah Coffee Club and even a Yellow Submarine - on this afternoon's optional excursion.

Day Three

After a leisurely breakfast we'll return to Liverpool, and board the "Ferry 'Cross the Mersey" for a whole new perspective on the city. The on-board commentary will bring the city's landmarks to life on this fascinating 50-minute cruise.

Afterwards there'll be the chance to enjoy a three-course lunch at Blake's Restaurant in the Hard Days Night Hotel, and you'll then have some free time to explore before we begin our journey home, arriving back in the local area by mid to late evening.

Excellent trip except the driver took his breaks at inconsiderate times. For example on the Sunday he had all morning from dropping us off at about 9am and up till 3pm in the afternoon to take his lunch however within the hour of setting off for home we had to stop for 45 minutes for him to take his break. Considering that some people lived in Kent I thought this was unreasonable as they would not have got to their dropping off points until about 11pm.

A long coach ride there and back, but we expected that as there were so many pickup points The hotel was very comfortable, but the evening meal was poor. The coach guide in Liverpool was excellent and the places we visited were very enjoyable and so was the ferry trip across the Mersey so all in all we enjoyed the trip.

Hitchin Couple
Traffic delay led to a 30 minute wait to start our journey and extensive road works on the M6 caused further delay. Hotel was comfortable and food good, with some choice for the coach trippers. Trips were well organised and the tour guide gave a detailed history of the group early lives and how they got together and developed their music. Trip across the Mersey was just that, a sail around with commentary about local landmarks. Beatles experience was interesting, but it took some time to master the personal audio units operation.
