    • Beatlemaniacs’ Liverpool e-bike tour

      “You and I have memories, longer than the road that stretches out ahead.”

      This unique e-bike ride is a “Magical Mystery Tour” of the sites that inspired four Liverpudlian lads’ music “Revolution”. Fab Four fans young and old will love their “Ticket to Ride” to the most iconic locations in Beatle history, as well as a number of the city's main sightseeing attractions, including Hope Street's Metropolitan and Anglican cathedrals.

      Take in Penny Lane's famous street sign autographed by Sir Paul McCartney himself, and the locations that inspired the lyrics. Cycling through Liverpool’s Sefton Park, inaccessible by car, you’ll reach the Palm House, Liverpool’s sparkling Victorian glasshouse, renovated with funds from George Harrison.

      Pose for a photo at the majestic red gates of Strawberry Fields, the entrance into the imagination of the mischievous young John Lennon, drawn to the orphanage by his yearning, even at a young age, to find his place in the world. You'll discover where he grew up, biking to 251 Menlove Avenue, where you can see the humble porch where the inimitable Lennon/McCartney songwriting legacy began. Then cycle in Lennon’s wheeltracks to 20 Forthlin Road, McCartney's childhood home.

      Be transported back to that fateful day in July 1957 when young rocker John stormed the ramshackle stage at St Peter’s Church with "The Quarrymen", unknowingly admired by one Sir Paul McCartney. Your day tour takes you over the road to the grave of Eleanor Rigby, the inspiration for one of The Beatles’ most haunting and lyrically masterful songs.

      En route back to base, enjoy a relaxing ride along the evocative River Mersey, whose ports made The Beatles possible - without ships bringing records over from America, who knows what the face of modern music would look like?

      “Come Together” on this one-of-a-kind e-bike tour, taking you through “A Day in the Life” of the legends of rock history!

        The best Beatles tour in Liverpool

        · The Beatles Liverpool E-Bike Tour

        This was an outstanding tour of Liverpool’s Beatles history, and the history of Liverpool as a port city. Our guide, Dale, was incredibly friendly and gave us high-quality commentary throughout the tour, teaching even lifelong Beatles fans something new about the band!

        The tour took us to the two main cathedrals, to the schools of John, Paul and George, the homes of John, Paul and Ringo, Strawberry Fields, Penny Lane, Woolton Village, Sefton Park, the grave of Eleanor Rigby, and along the beautiful Mersey promenade. By bike, we were able to reach places I hadn’t been able to see on a bus tour.

        I especially enjoyed our stop at Strawberry Fields, where we were given the chance to stop for coffee and see the original piano used by Lennon to record ‘Imagine’, complete with cigarette marks! Likewise, popping into the gift store on Penny Lane was a lovely touch.

        Our tour guide Dale, assisted by Sean, made sure we were comfortable all the way and took time to get to know us. I was impressed not only by his knowledge but by his commitment to making this an eco-friendly tour. It finished with a very relaxing ride along the promenade by the Mersey, with beautiful views of the river.

        We were kitted out with top quality e-bikes which made the whole tour very easy. Naming them after famous Liverpudlians is a great touch, and it was a brilliant atmosphere having the tunes of the Beatles playing from Dale’s bike as we cycled.

        I would highly recommend this tour to everyone wanting to discover authentic Liverpool, even if they aren’t a Beatles superfan – you get to see so much of the city. For a Beatles fan, this tour can’t be beaten.
