There is a thread for this already if I’m not mistaken. I’m sure @Ahhh Girl can locate it. But i remember being in London looking for something a little bit more detailed and organized. I support this idea.

It's a great idea. I do like the idea of threads on key locations, but I'm not convinced it needs a new sub-forum – there would probably only be a handful of threads. Discussions on cities with Beatles connections are probably best in Yesterday and Today, like the ones AG posted.

The book The Beatles' London is pretty indispensable if you're going there. I'm not sure of a definitive Liverpool guide. Liddypool is good, if a bit bulky, and if you're on the road you'll need something pocket-sized. Oh, and don't miss out on a Casbah guided tour, @AppleScruffJunior – you need to book in advance; don't miss out. It's hands-down the best place I've been to in Liverpool.

Here's my trip to Liverpool in 2010. So long ago…

For Liverpool, you'll want The Beatles' Liverpool: The Complete Guide by Ron Jones.

This is a suggestion for the main site, @Joe.

In the Songs section you have alphabet links to jump to where you want to be looking. In the History section, for a while you tried page numbers to try and make it easier to handle, but it seems you've decided that wasn't working too well as it's gone. Would it be possible to do what you've done on Songs with History, but instead of letters using years?
