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!
