The Beatles Statue
Liverpool Pier Head
(Opposite the Mersey Ferries Building)
An iconic statue of the Fab Four, in their hometown. The Beatles Statue arrived on Liverpool's Waterfront in December 2015. Donated by the famous Cavern Club, the placement of the statue coincides with the 50 year anniversary of the band's last gig played in Liverpool, at the Liverpool Empire Theatre. It's the city's most popular selfie spot!
The figures are larger than life size and weigh 1.2 tonnes in total. They were sculpted by Andrew Edwards who also created the All Together Now Christmas Truce WWI statue.
Take a walk through Liverpool ONE, and you might see where the inspiration for the statue came from.
Look out for the attention to detail, such as an 'L8' on the bottom of Ringo's shoe and the acorns in John's hand, cast from the ones that were picked up outside the Dakota building in New York.
