The Music Of Liverpool

I don't think there are many people who think of music and Liverpool and don't immediately think The Beatles.  Believe it or not The Beatles are now on the National Curriculum for Primary School Children.  Liam has loved learning about the Beatles last term and was coming home with facts on a daily basis.  He was so excited when his Grandad told him he had seen them play live in 1963.  This enthusiasm was the reason why I choose Liverpool.

We started out Beatles experience with visiting The Beatles Story which was next to our hotel.  It was reasonably priced at £21 for the 3 of us.  The entrance fee gave us entry to 2 exhibitions for the day plus the following day.

The second pat of The Beatles story was based 5 minutes away by the Mersery Ferry Terminal.  This included an exhibition of photographs of them and also a 4D film. 

The kids loved the interactive film which we had to see twice.  The first time we were on the front row and Freya could see the screen perfectly fine as there was nobody in front.  However, she was too short and missed out on the interactive parts of the film.  The second time we went we sat her on a booster seat and this tiem the sprays of water got her in the face instead of going over her head like they did the first time.  If Liam and I were getting wet it was only fair she did!

Monday saw the second part of our Beatles adventure when we went on the magical mystery tour.

After visiting Penny Lane, Strawberry Fields, George's home and Paul's Home we drove in to Liverpool City Centre to go to the Cavern Club.  The tour also drives past John & Ringo's childhood home, their managers house and sold school but you do not get off the coach at this places.
