Day One

Leaving your pick-up point, early this morning, we'll travel by coach to your hotel, making comfort stops en route. After time to freshen up, we will continue to the Royal Albert Hall, for the highlight of our break - this evening's 'It was 50 Years Ago Today' Beatles celebration concert, hosted by legendary Liverpool poet Roger McGough and with music arranged by Nigel Osborne.

Let the music carry you back to the heady days of 1967 as you enjoy a live performance of some of the most celebrated, diverse and era-defining tunes in the history of popular music - 'With a Little Help from My Friends', 'Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds', 'When I'm Sixty-Four' and many more.

At the end of the evening, your coach and tour manager will be on hand to take you back to your hotel, allowing you to relax and enjoy the memories of this incredible evening.

Day Two

After a buffet breakfast, this morning, we'll head into Central London for a short sightseeing tour that includes some of the sights forever associated with the Fab Four. Starting at Abbey Road, we'll see the Beatles Store, the venue where four of the five Beatles films were premiered and more.

You'll then have time to explore and, perhaps, return to the Beatles Store, check out the musical memorabilia in the vault beneath the Hard Rock Cafe or visit the British Library - home to some exceptionally rare Beatles artefacts.

We'll begin our journey home in the mid afternoon, and should be back at your original pick-up point by mid-to-late evening.
