Note by Ahhh Girl 14 August 2014: I combined 7 of the Liverpool threads.
Post 1-4 were from "My visit to The Beatles Story in Liverpool"
Post 5-7 were from "New permanent exhibition of rare Beatles photos in Liverpool - free entry!"
Posts 8-13 and 32 were from 3 thread dealing with tours in Liverpool.
Posts 14 was from "Beatles subject of pioneering street art in Liverpool"
Posts 15-19 were from "Yellow Submarine hotel in Liverpool"
Posts 20-31 and 33 were from "beatle-things to do in liverpool" (I'm working on the thread title change.)
Posts 34-35 were from "Liverpool".

----------

Following on from my Casbah Coffee Club photos, here are some I took afterwards when we went to the museum in Albert Dock on the banks of the Mersey.

 

You will probably recognise this famous photo. The guitars here are replicas, but the next photo isn't!

 

This is the ACTUAL banjo in the picture!

 

This one had me drooling again. It didn't say it WAS the guitar in the picture, but it didn't say it WASN'T! Plus is was very, very well guarded with alarms. You decide…..

Granny glasses that were worn by John

So jealous.

I'd like to be, under the sea, in an octopus's garden, with you.

Me too!! Actually after thinking too much, I've decided to save for a trip to New York, England and France (Paris) next year instead of buying a car. Cars are so overrated. a-hard-days-night-john-5

Good plan, mithveaen. a-hard-days-night-john-6 Man, if I ever (when I) go to Liverpool, I will bawl my eyes out and buy as many things as I can fit in my suitcases. Just looking at those photos makes me want to cry tears of pure Beatleness

I'm in love, but I'm lazy.

We are rather chuffed to announce to all Beatles fans that The Beatles Hidden Gallery collection will now have a permanent home at The Pier Head in Liverpool!

The exhibition opens on the 25th August and will be on permanent display, giving fans the opportunity to browse the entire collection of these incredible (and big!) rare images of the fab four taken during 1963/64.

 

Entrance is free and a big thank you is due to the lovely people at The Beatles Story who have made this possible!

 

You can find out more about the story behind the pictures on the website at http://www.the-beatles-hidden-.....allery.com

(note: 23 March 2014, Ahhh Girl merged two threads on this topic. The second thread began with post #4. Note #2: meanmistermustard added post 7 to this topic on the 10th August 2014.)

 

Hi,

    Can anyone recommend a Beatles tour company in Liverpool that includes visits and entry to John and Paul's childhood homes and visits to the Beatles story?

Ah yes, I went to Liverpool and all of the Beatles iconic areas in Liverpool for my 14th Birthday but I didn't find any tour companies. I swear their was one called Magical Mystery Tour. Or did I just Dream that? Yep, That was a dream! a-hard-days-night-george-6

Anytime at all, all you gotta do is call, and I'll be there.

(NB: Sorry if this is in the wrong section of the forum...)

Has anyone ever been on the Magical Mystery Tour or the tour of John and Paul's houses in Liverpool? I've done them both, and was very impressed.

http://www.nationaltrust.org.u.....eatles.htm

I would recommend both of the tours- especially the National Trust one. A lot of care had been taken in restoring Mendips and 20 Forthlin Road to how they looked when John and Paul lived there.

Thanks for the pictures Joe. I'd sure like to visit Liverpool some time, but it's a LONG way from Georgia USA.

Beatles subject of pioneering street art in Liverpool

The world’s first dual, anamorphic 3D work of pavement art - featuring The Beatles - has been created in Liverpool city centre. The massive 24m long by 6m wide work, entitled ‘XXL Liverpool’, has been commissioned by City Central Business Improvement District to celebrate the dual 50th anniversary of The Beatles first gig at The Cavern Club (February 9 1961) and them meeting their manager Brian Epstein (November 9 1961).

Liverpool sure is cashing that the Beatles were from there.

The following people thank Long John Silver for this post:

Kind of like how Memphis uses Elvis's past residency as a business of itself. I live in a town in Tennessee that's about three hours away from Memphis, and they even feel the need to advertise Elvis's "Memphis-hood" all over my city! Craziness...

Anyways, to get back on topic: Is that one room, Into the Sky, or is it the whole hotel? And if it's the whole hotel, are there rooms under the water to make you feel like you're "living beneath the waves"? Because if that's the entire hotel, it sure looks small...especially when you take into consideration the business it's bound to bring in from touristing fans.

Well they sure get a lot of money from it, I mean by what else is Liverpool famous for? The first thing that comes in my mind beside Beatles is the Liverpool football club, but that isn't enough to attract tourists, so they do it with Beatles. There are Beatles room in Liverpool hotel and they look quite cool.

so i finally got my family to book a family holiday in liverpool, hurray :D
surely some of you have already been there, so i hoped you might know some beatle-things to do there (especially with people, who have nothing against - , but definatley are no grazy freaky fans of the beatles a-hard-days-night-george-10) maybe you have some insider tips... oh, and if you know something non-beatleish (did i just create a word?) thing you shouldn't miss in liverpool, let me know as well :)
