We chose a black cab Beatles tour with the Fab Four Taxi Tour company and were very pleased with it because we had an informative story-telling driver/guide who added to the atmosphere by playing Beatles music en route. Also, we didn’t turn up to sites with a crowd, didn’t have to manoeuvre narrow streets in a big vehicle, and didn’t have to jostle for a view or pictures.
I thoroughly enjoyed it, going round to see the houses that the Beatles grew up in, visiting Penny Lane and Strawberry Fields, seeing Eleanor Rigby’s gravestone, and realising that the (one-man) yellow submarine is real ! Can you see what’s hidden in the brickwork of the house on Ringo Starr’s childhood street?
