Well, more than a day. A couple of days in Liverpool. I would consider myself a casual fan of The Beatles as opposed to a diehard one. But as important as The Beatles are to music history, I was excited to get to experience a little of this history. My visit was short–it was more with friends and family of friends–but I got the highlights. I really wasn’t sure what to expect from Liverpool. I had always heard it to be a more working class city. But it’s a city full of culture and has an exciting vibe with its huge waterfront and bustling shopping areas.
But it was walking down Mathew Street, home to the Cavern Club where The Beatles played before hitting it big, that was the highlight. The Beatles tour ended at Strawberry Field. Strawberry Fields forever.
