Liverpool is well-known for its music. The city is officially the World Capital of Pop, and the Fab Four are, of course, its most famous offspring.
Non-negotiable for Liverpool music fans is a trip to The Beatles Story at Albert Dock, a brilliant tour through the Beatles’ lives, with fascinating Fab Four memorabilia and insights from friends and family.
You should also pop into the Cavern Club on Mathew Street, where the Beatles began, for some live music in the evening; or visit the childhood homes of John Lennon and Sir Paul McCartney, Mendips and 20 Forthlin Road in Allerton, both of which are now National Trust properties.
The Liverpool music scene also includes the world-class Echo Arena Liverpool, which has attracted such massive names as Bob Dylan, Beyonce and Dame Shirley Bassey in the past.
Liverpool is home to one of the finest orchestras in the country, the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra who play at the beautiful art deco Philharmonic Hall. The Hall also stages contemporary and classical music by a host of famous names.
Many smaller venues throughout Liverpool host live music nights and open mic nights. You’re never too far away from music in this city.
