Visit in The Beatles Story exhibition – Liverpool
The Beatles Story in Liverpool, located on the historical Albert Dock, is the world’s largest permanent exhibition dedicated to The Beatles’ rise to fame.
As Liverpool is the band’s hometown, you will find plenty of places and souvenirs dedicated to the four lads.
I was happy to visit The Beatles Story last week and I truly loved the way the exhibition tells their story. So if you’re interested in the band that first conquered Liverpool, then UK and Europe, and then the whole world check out the photographs from my recent visit in this atmospheric place.

The Casbah Coffee Club was a rock&roll music club in Liverpool, West Derby.
The Quarrymen were a skiffle / rock & roll group created by Lennon in 1956. When arranging their first booking at the Casbah, the group was formed by John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ken Brown.

It became a centre of the rock&roll scene in Liverpool in the 1960s. The band made their first appearance there in February 1961 after returning to Liverpool from Hamburg. They played their farewell gig in the Cavern in August 1963.
Beatlemania began in 1963 and continued until 1970, despite the band ceasing performances in 1966.
The ‘Yellow Sumbarine’ single went to number 1 on every major British chart at the time. Paul McCartney said:
We were trying to write a children’s song. That was the basic idea. And there’s nothing more to be read into it than there is in the lyrics of any children’s song.
It received a lot of different social and political interpretations at the time, but nothing such was intended by The Beatles.
Break-up of the band was a long process – nothing happened instantaneously. There were differences between the vision each group member had for the Beatles and they stopped touring in 66′. Death of their manager, Brian Epstein, also had a profound effect on each of the Beatles. The cause of his death was drug overdose
Because of Lennon’s close relationship with Brian he was the one most affected by his death. None of The Beatles attended Epstein’s funeral to allow his family privacy and to avoid attracting attention in the media.
When the group’s split was announced, rumours of break up had been circulating for a long time and a lot of people saw it coming. But still, it left the fans heartbroken.

Its design allowed ships to be loaded and unloaded directly from the large warehouses.
