DAYS OUT // LIVERPOOL & THE CAVERN CLUB
Liverpool is without a doubt one of my favourite cities and I had the opportunity to visit again the other weekend. We were greeted with a grey sky but no matter the weather, Liverpool always offers a fun day out.
We had a wander around the docks and there's many a photo opportunity, as you can tell!
The Beatles Story exhibition is something that I've never actually done. I'd love to plan a Liverpool weekend entirely revolving around The Beatles some day. They offer magical mystery bus tours around the city, pointing out the star's old family houses and where they used to perform.
Obviously, The Beatles are huge in Liverpool and it's not likely you'll ever miss a reference to John Lennon on your travels.

We finally found The Cavern Club after a few wrong turns. I have always wanted to visit here and it was amazing to finally see it in person! Being taught about The Beatles from a young age and watching 'Cilla' more recently, it is definitely a landmark location for me.
Inside, it's like stepping back in time. Due to the place being so iconic, I'd recommend getting there early in the day to grab a seat, particularly if you're in the city on a weekend or bank holiday. We managed to nab a table and our first round of drinks were ordered by 12pm on the dot. Huge thanks to the lovely bar staff, my mum was smitten.
We spent the majority of our time here and didn't even bother exploring Liverpool any further (plenty of other opportunities for that!) With fantastic performers every couple of hours and a (fairly) cheap round of drinks, we couldn't have asked for a better afternoon. Someone in our party was celebrating her 21st birthday and managed to get herself up on The Cavern stage a grand total of three times, singing her heart out to 'She Loves You' with the help of a jagerbomb at 1.45pm. That's certainly a memorable birthday!
We had the pleasure of meeting Anna-Maria from Argentina who, without a doubt, was the biggest Beatles fan in the room. Speaking little English did nothing to deter her from a rousing rendition of 'Hey Jude' and she was absolutely overwhelmed. It was an amazing atmosphere, therefore this is the one place I would DEMAND you go if you're ever in the city.
Have you ever been to Liverpool? Where would you recommend?
