Did you know that Wirral played host to the largest ever audience for a live Beatles concert on UK mainland?
Everyone knows Liverpool as being home to The Beatles, however, Wirral, which is separated from Liverpool by the River Mersey, also possesses a significant yet little-known role in the band's early career.
‘The Beatles across the Mersey’ is a tour of memorable Wirral venues.
Explore the story & venues in Wirral with this leaflet & the map with the list of venues.
You can also view a short film about MerseyBeat, New Brighton, The Beatles and their connection to the area. Video
We suggest you take a day to explore this Beatles trail while taking in some of Wirral’s fantastic coast and countryside along with a café or restaurant for lunch.
If you haven’t yet explored The Beatles connection in Liverpool then take another day to do so:
At the Beatles Story exhibition discover the music, culture and story of the band that changed the world
After lunch, book on to a Magical Mystery Tour and let the iconic yellow bus transport you to the famous Liverpool places immortalised by the Fab Four.
And no trip would be complete without a visit to Mathew Street and hearing some live music at the Cavern, the subterranean club where the Beatles played nearly 300 times.
Fiendish Thingy: Thanks Bobber. I'm good thanks. Quiet on here for the last few months. I see Al has gone all 'Facebook' and is attracting new members. No bad thing. Are you going to the annual Beatleweek in Liverpool this year? Not long now 10 weeks or so. See you there?

Bobber: Not sure. It's an expensive trip for me plus I'm starting a new job around that time.

Amadeus: Hey all. Not been frequenting here very much lately. Between burying people, helping sick people and feeling crap myself, Me and Mrs. A. have been weighed under. Hoping to get a bit more out of that rut so I can focus back on the fun things I used to focus
