  • Beatles

    Liverpool Things to Do

    I like the Beatles, but I do not consider myself to be one of their greatest fans. Therefore, I think that the commercial exploitation of the fab four has gone a little too far in Liverpool. There are several attractions, tours and places related to the Beatles – other travellers surely have better tips on them than I would have. This is rather my...

As we were in the building anyway (after having visited the International Slavery Museum) and had an hour before closing time, we decided to give it a chance. I was not disappointed at all and even wished that I...
