Located in the heart of Liverpool’s Albert Dock - a key part of the city’s UNESCO World Heritage Site along the banks of the River Mersey – The Beatles Story is surrounded by some of the most stunning architectural sights in the UK; perfect for a romantic stroll by the river before having a meal at one of the Dock’s many award-winning restaurants.
Clare Ireland, General Manager of Beatles Story says:
“So much of The Beatles’ music focuses on love, so it makes perfect sense for couples to come to the hometown of the famous four to propose to each other. We feel that by offering such a unique romantic setting for a marriage proposal, we can complement what will already be a perfect day.”
The Beatles Story is Liverpool’s leading visitor attraction and has won countless awards for its customer experience as well as the content of its exhibition. The exhibition is a chronological tour through the lives and times of The Beatles from their skiffle roots through to Beatlemania and beyond.
Each area of the Beatles Story transports people back in time in the lives of The Beatles and it is this immersive quality that will appeal to Beatles fans looking to make an unforgettable marriage proposal in a unique, tasteful and timeless fashion.www.beatlesstory.com
