There’s lots to do and see in Liverpool. Here’s a few handy links to help you get the most from your visit!
On The Beatles tour we go to the place where it all started, where John met Paul for the first time, St Peter’s Church Hall
This year is the 60th anniversary of that day and there are events held between 6th July – 9th July 2017 so if you’re coming around that time book early to guarantee a space!

Local places to eat and drink…
There’s a new kid on the Baltic block in the form of Ryde which is a cafe, bike repair shop and lovely place to recharge your batteries after a tour! You’ll get 10% off a tea / coffee with your discount card too.
Unit 51 is a great cafe / bar / art space that has a great selection of teas and coffees and some delicious freshly prepared food (including an awesome veggie breakfast!) – when you finish your tour you can enjoy some refreshments here and get a discount with the card you get after the tour.
As a Scouser, life wouldn’t be the same without a bowl of Scouse. Eh? What’s Scouse? Well we’re called Scousers for a reason and if you want to sample an authentic bowl of Scouse (for a very reasonable price!) then look no further than Fruit & Fibres which is just around the corner from where your cycle tour starts and ends. You can get a free tea / coffee with a main meal if you’ve been on a tour with us (show your card!). They also do a Blind Scouse for vegetarians.
The Caledonia is a local pub with a great atmosphere, great beers and superb music (check out Blind Monk Trio / Marley Chingus – one of the best jazz / dub bands in the UK).
The Egg is a vegan and vegetarian cafe with great food and decent prices.
