The Beatles Story, Liverpool

The Beatles Story is the must-see attraction which offers visitors a unique insight into the life, times, culture and music of the Fab 4.  You'll be taken on an exciting journey, starting with a look at the childhoods of the Beatles in Liverpool, through to the early days of the band including Hamburg, to world domination and Beatlemania, followed by an in-depth look at their solo careers.
 Hear the story unfold through the enlightening 'Living History' audio guide, available in many different languages, and narrated by John Lennon's sister, Julia.

The Beatles Story is housed over two sites, so once you've experienced the magic of the Beatles at the Albert Dock, head over to our second home, Beatles Story Pier Head, in the Mersey Ferries Terminal, for our Fab4D Experience and world class Special Exhibitions.

Fab 4 Store

With two branches of the Fab4 Store, one on each site, you'll find everything from t-shirts, posters and books to unique gifts and limited edition merchandise.  You can also find the Fab4 Store online
