Home of the Beatles, you can’t explore the best of Liverpool without walking in the shoes of the Fab Four. From Liverpool’s leafy suburbs to city centre landmarks, there’s an essence of John, Paul, George and Ringo wherever you go.
At Shankly Tours, we’re here to ensure that your sight-seeing journey runs smoothly, so that you can enjoy a full Beatles experience. Your visit to the city may be fleeting, but there’s plenty you can fit in with a great plan.
Cementing an iconic era, the rise of the Beatles ran parallel with Liverpool Football Club’s rise into a ‘Bastion of Invincibility’. It didn’t take long for excitement surrounding Liverpool’s stars to intermix; Bill Shankly’s Liverpool FC was one of the first clubs to have fans sing Beatles songs from the terraces. Liverpool is now renowned worldwide for two defining reasons: the Fab Four and its vibrant football culture. So, we thought we’d combine the two to create the ultimate tour of Liverpool.
For Beatles fans visiting Liverpool, it can be tricky to fit everything in. To truly experience the Beatles’ Liverpool, you’ll need to head out of the city centre and discover the most sentimental spots of the suburbs. That’s where we come in to save the day!

A Full Experience of Liverpool
Nestled away from the bright lights of the city centre, the story behind John Lennon’s nostalgic and and dreamy “Strawberry Fields Forever” revolves around Lennon’s very own childhood dreamworld.
You’ll be taken to the gatepost to Strawberry Field, where Lennon and his childhood friends would spend hours playing within the wooded garden. The popular tourist attraction is located close to Lennon’s childhood home in Woolton, one of Liverpool’s most scenic suburbs. A chance to truly follow in the footsteps of John Lennon, exploring this sentimental suburb will certainly be a day to remember for Beatles fans from near and far.
