Tour 5 – Why walk when you can take ‘A Ticket to Ride’
Evening Tour: Spring and Summer only
Exclusively Beatle-related sites (well almost!)
The Beatles story is a tale of two cities; until 1962 they were a Liverpool ‘beat band ‘ but they achieved global dominance once they moved to London. It was London that made the Beatles, directly influencing their artistic development. It was London where they chose to live. Over 50 major Beatles sites are visited on this memorable evening tour, charting the ‘Beatlemania’ years from 1962 to 1969, and their solo years thereafter. No other London Beatle tour covers as many central London sites and locations in a single tour, or in such an entertaining and fun way! This is the perfect way to while-away a Summer’s eve, celebrating 50-years of the ‘Fab Four’, with lots of stops and photo opportunities.
The tour includes:
- The Scotch of St James Club and other Beatle club & pub ‘haunts’
- Historic early gig and show locations
- The art gallery where John met Yoko, and galleries where John staged his own art shows
- The only apartment where the Beatles lived together
