Description

This "B Side" online experience will take you to Penny Lane, Strawberry Field & outside the childhood homes of John Lennon, Paul McCartney and Ringo Star. 

We will start at the bottom of Penny Lane, and get a closer look of Paul McCartney's signature on the road sign which he added while filming for "Carpool Karaoke". Even if there's no "Blue Suburban Skies" have your favourite Beatles playlists ready as we take you around the "Shelter in the Middle of the Roundabout" see the Barbers and the Bank and all the locations in the song Penny Lane. 

Next, we will drive past the home of Brian Epstein and stop at Strawberry Fields, here you can zoom in on the original gates. Catch a glimpse of the childhood home of John Lenon from outside and learn why he was taken away from his birth mother Julia, why he and Paul decided to stop playing in 1958 and who got them back together again. It's a long and winding road as you journey to take photos outside the childhood home of Paul McCartney. Neil has once had a Canadian Guest bury the ashes of his cat "Winston" and had a proposal of marriage at Strawberry Field Gates. En-route to the city centre, see Ringo Starr's childhood home(s) from outside. The tour will finish outside the World's 5th largest cathedral and the Beatles schools and colleges in Liverpool city centre.

Neil & Claire

Neil McDonald and Claire Rider are both Liverpool Blue Badge Tourist Guides who have been running the original Liverpool Beatles Walk every day for the last 7 years. Neil was the Head of Customer Service for a telecommunications company and Claire was a Marketing Manager. However, they both discovered their real vocation and each other when they trained together for two years as tour guides in 2013. Neil & Claire both know the owners of the Cavern Club really well, they speak regularly to Roag Best and take guests to his family home 'The Casbah'. Many other Beatles legends are still around on Penny Lane and they know the original Quarry-men, Beatles authors, and even John Lennon's half-sister. Everyone in Liverpool works extremely hard to keep the story real. They are both licensed driver/guides with a beautiful V-Class Mercedes and are usually busy showing guests all around the UK on luxury multi-day tours. They love their jobs and will really help you put all the Beatles locations into context. Claire is often singing and extremely theatrical, and Neil knows an absolute wealth of interesting facts. Neil was once guiding visitors around the corner on a Beatles Tour and there was Paul McCartney who even agreed to have his photo taken with the clients!
