Cavern Club Tours

star-5
220 Reviews
Cavern Club
Famous as the stage where the Beatles made their debut in 1961, Liverpool’s Cavern Club has become a place of legend, hosting not only the Fab Four, but the Who, the Kinks, the Rolling Stones, Queen, Elton John, and many more household names. The influential club remains one of Liverpool’s top live music venues to this day.
 
The Basics
Beatles tours of Liverpool often make a stop at the legendary Cavern Club, and Magical Mystery Bus tour participants receive free entrance the evening of their tour. While Beatles fans are often content to enjoy a drink at the historic venue, the best way to experience the Cavern Club is to attend a gig. Live music performances take place daily at the main stage, the Cavern Live Lounge, and the Cavern Pub. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Entrance to the club is free during the day, but some evenings and shows are ticketed.
  • Children under the age of 18 are allowed in until 8pm. The legal drinking age in the UK is 18. 
  • For ticketed events, it’s a good idea to book in advance. 
  • The Cavern Club and Cavern Live Lounge are both wheelchair accessible.

How to Get There
The Cavern Club is located on Mathew Street in central Liverpool, a short walk from Albert Dock and the Beatles Story. The nearest train station is Liverpool James Street and the closest parking is at the Liverpool ONE shopping center, each a 5-minute walk from the venue.

When to Get There
The Cavern Club is open every day and night of the week, with later closing times Thursday to Saturday. From Monday to Wednesday, admission is free; on weekends arrive early to avoid the queues. Beatles fans should visit on a Saturday, when the Cavern Club Beatles perform a tribute to the iconic band.  

History of the Cavern Club
Starting out as a jazz club in 1957, the Cavern Club became famous around the world thanks to the Beatles, who played almost 300 gigs there between 1961 and 1963 before becoming a global phenomenon. After the club’s 1960s heyday, it closed down in 1973 and was demolished. A new Cavern Club rose on the original site in the 1980s and has since become one of the most popular Liverpool venues of the 21st century, featuring acts such as Jessie J, Adele, Oasis, Arctic Monkeys, and even Sir Paul McCartney. 
Address: 10 Mathew Street, Liverpool L2 6RE, England

Using a local tour guide on a safe guided walking tour in the fresh air will let you explore the pedestrianised area in the docks and the heart of the city. You will learn and see far more than if you attempted to visit on your own and your local Liverpool Tour Guide will help you to plan the rest of your visit.
