Penny Lane was of course made famous by The Beatles song of that name, released in 1967. John Lennon and Paul McCartney used to meet at Penny Lane to catch a bus into town. Their shared childhood experiences on the street inspired them to write the song, which was released as a double ‘A’ side with ‘Strawberry Fields Forever’ and later featured on the US album ‘Magical Mystery Tour.’

Many Beatles fans make pilgrimage to Penny Lane in the South of the city, to see the street. It’s still a lively area, with independent businesses lining the street. There’s even a barber’s shop in the same spot referenced in the song.

Pass By: St. Peter's Church, Woolton, Church Road Woolton, Liverpool L25 5JF England

The meeting took place at St Peter’s Church Hall on the evening of Saturday, 6th July 1957… Whilst waiting to play at the church dance that night, John Lennon and the other members of the Quarrymen Skiffle Group were introduced to the young Paul McCartney by a mutual friend.

Stop At: The Cavern Club, 10 Mathew Street, Liverpool L2 6RE England

Excellent tour. Guide Neil and driver Steve were knowledgeable and fun. If you want to do a Beatles immersion tour this is it.

The tour started off pretty well and the instructions were easy to follow. The experience was great however, we did not realize that booking near Christmas day in the UK means that train services are at risk being cancelled. Our scheduled train back to London was cancelled last minute and we had to go through alternative routes and gave up our reserved seats. This was our first time in the Country and we’re not familiar with the situation and would be helpful if first timers can be warned beforehand.

I am 74 and Male from Toronto. The entire day was Dreamlike for me. From the Beatles Story, the Bronze statues on the Dock with the highlight being the Beatles Magical Mystery Tour bus Ride. The young man that narrated the trip was Outstanding and the whole tour was Amazing. The singalongs were a dream come true. A day I will always remember.

I loved it all! Just being where the Beatles lived and began was thrilling for me. I’ve wanted to come to Liverpool since I was 10 (60 years ago).

We had a fantastic time on this tour. Transportation was super easy and straightforward, with trains to and from Liverpool arranged by the tour. The morning was spent at the Beatles Story Museum which was awesome; and the afternoon Magical Mystery Tour was equally so. We also had some spare time in between the two to get lunch, and in the evening before our train back to do another activity (we went to the Liverpool Cathedral but there are a few options of additional activities). Highly recommend this tour!
