Travelling to London and Liverpool on Monday. What should I do? 

Abbey Road in London, and so many places to visit in Liverpool – including their former homes and Mathew Street (Cavern Quarter).

And in the end

The love you take is equal to the love you make

Depends on how long you’ve got in each.

I’m in Liverpool for pretty much five days so if anyone can suggest places to go and see, I will. I’m not one for paying to get in places as don’t see the financial worth to much of so for example I won’t be going in to Paul’s childhood home, tho will walk past it, or The Beatles Story museum but if there is anywhere particularly noteworthy I may do. I may even do a tour.

I can happily stand in a shop looking at random Beatles guff, no idea how I am going to cope in Liverpool. 

Haven’t been for 23 years and am already buzzing.

Hopefully I’ll get there in 2023! I really need to see this City and all it has to offer Beatlewise

An interesting article from Time Out magazine…

Is Liverpool getting fed up with Beatles tourism?

They just revealed the Brian Epstein Statue in Liverpool this past weekend. I really cant imagine them stopping endorcing Beatles Tourism. Would be the same as stopping people from going to the football games. It’s part of their culture. It will only get bigger when ever Paul and Ringo…you know.

I don’t see it stopping either. The Beatles exist and will always be popular or at least known to some extent. Liverpool is forever linked to the lads. There’s nothing stopping that.

I think so too. It’s part of Liverpools History and the lads will always be part of their history and legacy. Its like with the german city Leipzig where I was born and raised until 18 which will always be accoiated with Johann Sebastian Bach (german classic muscian) and to an extend Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (famous german poet). Its like Memphis is Elvis Town since he became famous and a legend. The Beatles have definate place in pop culture and culture history. And so Liverpool will be Beatles City (as well as London to an extend).
