About

The Beatles Story, Albert Dock

The Beatles Story, Albert Dock is the world’s largest permanent exhibition purely devoted to the lives and times of The Beatles. The exhibition is located on the UNESCO World Heritage site at the Albert Dock and will guide you through the music, culture and story of the band that changed the world.

Join The Beatles on their journey; first conquering Liverpool, and then the world through immersive recreations of key locations from the band’s career including The Casbah Club, The Cavern Club, and Abbey Road Studios.

With information, imagery, memorabilia and video interviews with Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Olivia Harrison and Yoko Ono, the Beatles Story, Albert Dock tells the story of the fab four.

Currently on display is the ‘Holy Grail’ record that launched The Beatles - the unique acetate record presented to George Martin by Brian Epstein on February 13th 1962, in an attempt to get the band a recording contract. It features the recording of ‘Hello Little Girl’ on one side and ‘Til There Was You’ on the other. The acetate features the handwriting of Brian Epstein, who had the disc cut using The Beatles’ Decca audition tapes. Despite Martin’s initial reticence, the disc eventually led to the breakthrough the band were looking for.

During 2017 we celebrate 50 years of The Beatles’ ‘Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club’ album with several new exhibits and special events #SgtPepper50
