The Beatles Story Experience
"Formed in Liverpool in 1960 the Beatles became one of the most successful and critically acclaimed bands of all time. As testament to their success they gained a devoted fan base around the world and the Beatles Story Experience was later created to satisfy the Beatlemania that still grips Liverpool to this day.The attraction was initially based at Liverpool's Albert Dock (a UNESCO World Heritage Site) and housed a large exhibition of exciting Beatles memorabilia for fans to see. It quickly proved so popular that a second Beatles Story Experience site was developed at Pier Head a short walk away from the Albert Dock.Both sites are included in your ticket price. While you can start your Beatles Story Experience at either location it's recommended that you start at the Albert Dock site to experience the history of the Beatles first. Listen to an audio guide
