The Cavern Area - Liverpool

Matthew Street is the heart of the Cavern area so this is the best place to start. Here you will find:

The Cavern Club - Where it all began. The original Cavern, located opposite the the Grapes Pub, was closed in 1973 and lqater demolished. However the current Cavern Club has faithfully reproduced the exact interior and more importantly the atmosphere of the original club.

Just across from the Cavern Club you will find:

The Cavern Pub - A Beatles theme pub offering Beatle memorabilia and a great atmosphere; and The John Lennon Stature, The Cavern Wall of Fame and The Record Wall of Fame featuring those Liverpool Groups who attained Number 1 Record Sales.

Venturing further into Matthew Street you will see Artur Dooleys Beatles Sculpture. Oppposite, why not have a browse around the Cavern Walks Shopping Centre or continue down Matthews Street for a drink in the famous Grapes Pub ( The Beatles used to drink here between sessions in the Cavern - which was alcohol free)

Finally at the end of Matthews Street have a look in the Beatles Shop and Matthew Street Gallery, which offers the art of John Lennon

Turn right into Rainford Gardens and here you will find the White Star Pub follow down to the corner and again turn right into Harrington Street and half way up you will find the Eleanor Rigby Statue ( could this have something to do with the Rigby Pub on Dales Street )


Beatles Facts:

The Beatles made the Cavern Club famous, playing nearly 300 shows between February 1961 and August 1963 in the cellar club on tiny Mathew Streetl.

Mona Best's home was at 8 Haymen's Green in West Derby, a village on the distant outskirts of Liverpool. Despite the long trek, the basement of the home was turned into the successful Casbah Club, a teenage coffee house and venue for bands. The Beatles played there often and, in the summer of 1960, added Mona's son Pete Best to their line-up on drums

John Lennon was born on October 9, 1940 in the now-closed Maternity Hospital on Oxford Street, adjacent to the University of Liverpool campus. Paul McCartney was born on June 18, 1942 in Walton Hospital, where his mother had worked as a nurse. Walton Hospital is in the northern part of Liverpool not far from Paul's first home at 10 Sunbury Road. George Harrison was born on February 25, 1943 in a tiny "two up, two down" on the Arnold Grove cul-de-sac not far from Penny Lane. Ringo Starr [Richard Starkey] was born on July 7, 1940 on Madryn Street in the "Dingle" area of Liverpool. Both George and Ringo were born at home.
