The Beatles

Did you know that Wirral played host to the largest ever audience for a live Beatles concert on UK mainland? 

Everyone knows Liverpool as being home to The Beatles, however, Wirral, which is separated from Liverpool by the River Mersey, also possesses a significant yet little-known role in the band's early career. 

‘The Beatles across the Mersey’ is a tour of memorable Wirral venues.

Explore the story & venues in Wirral with this leaflet & the map with the list of venues.

You can also view a short film about MerseyBeat, New Brighton, The Beatles and their connection to the area. Video

We suggest you take a day to explore this Beatles trail while taking in some of  Wirral’s fantastic coast and countryside along with a café or restaurant for lunch

If you haven’t yet explored The Beatles connection in Liverpool then take another day to do so:

At the Beatles Story exhibition discover the music, culture and story of the band that changed the world

After lunch, book on to a Magical Mystery Tour and let the iconic yellow bus transport you to the famous Liverpool places immortalised by the Fab Four.

And no trip would be complete without a visit to Mathew Street and hearing some live music at the Cavern, the subterranean club where the Beatles played nearly 300 times.
