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.

For anyone visiting Liverpool as a "tourist", a visit to Mathew Street is a must. Home of the famous Cavern Club where you can visit from early morning until late night and catch live bands and/or recorded music and have a drink at a reasonable price. The current Cavern is actually a replica of the original Cavern Club which stood a few yards further down the street and was "home" to the Beatles and many other groups and singers from the Merseybeat era . The original entrance is now marked by the relatively recent bronze statue of Cilla Black which has become as big a tourist attraction as the John Lennon statue near the top of the street. The Cilla statue was commissioned by her sons and depicts her back in the 60's at the height of her singing career. It's interesting in the fact that the dress she is wearing is made up of small square "pictures" which show snippets from her long career including her wedding, receiving her OBE and photos taken with Jimmy Tarbuck, Brian Epstein and others. Several bars and shops line the street which has a steady flow of people at all times of day..and night. If you're coming to Liverpool, you need to visit Mathew Street to make it complete!

If the Liverpool of the 1960's means anything to you, the Beatles, Gerry and the Pacemakers and Cilla Black are all echoes of the past as you walk down the street where it all happened. Always busy, lively and fun, worth a walk down memory lane anytime.

Several bronze statues - great fun to take pictures with them! Tons of bars, several restaurants and gift shops. During the day it is absolutely fine, but after dark it seems that the drunk people multiply by 10. Also, before heading down to Mathew Street - check if either Everton or Liverpool soccer teams lost that day. It can dramatically change the atmosphere.
