Travel: Hamburg to London

In preparation for their impending Scottish tour, The Beatles flew back from Hamburg to London on 1 January 1963.

The group spent the night in London before flying to Scotland the following day.

1963 was, in many ways, The Beatles’ annus mirabilis. Although they didn’t know it at the time, by the end of the year their lives would be turned upside down. They would be famous all across the United Kingdom and elsewhere, and their singles and albums would have sold in their millions.
