What we offer on a school trip
Be transported on an incredible immersive journey as we tell the story of how four young lads from Liverpool were propelled to the dizzy heights of fame and fortune from their humble childhood beginnings. Replicas of the Casbah, Mathew Street and The Cavern authentically capture the early 60s, allowing you to personally experience the very places that helped make The Beatles the greatest band in the world.
Hear the story unfold through our complimentary ‘Living History’ audio guides, which are available in twelve different languages and suitable for all ages. With special exhibitions, authentic memorabilia and exclusive photographs, there's all this and much more at this award-winning attraction.
