Owner description: Situated in the Cavern Quarter at the heart of the city. Liverpool's most famous street not only houses the Cavern Club but numerous references and connections to the "four lads who shook the world" and Liverpool's long musical heritage. There's shopping, bars and pubs, and come summer weekends the street is packed with partying locals and tourists.
Reviewed 11 September 2017

Having eagerly savoured all the Beatles links here many times ourselves over the years, we called for the first time in ages as we had a teenage German student staying with and said it was a 'must' on any visit to Liverpool - but, even at 5pm on a Saturday afternoon, the street was teeming with crowds of stag and hen revellers and it made for a nasty, seedy, intimidating experience and we couldn't get away quick enough. I fear that, more than 40 years after the original Cavern was sadly demolished because there was no proper appreciation of the Beatles' lasting influence in the decade before John Lennon's death, the great history of Mathew Street is in danger of drowning in a flood of lager and cocktails.

A fantastic place to stroll and watch the other tourists as they discover the shops and pubs on this famous street in Liverpool. Stop and read the signs and name of all the musicians who have been there near The Cavern Club. Stop in and have a pint!
