Spring Break Part 3: Liverpool

After London we headed to Liverpool for a day to get the ultimate Beatles tour and we did indeed! We took the Fab Four Taxi Tour around Liverpool and our guide was great! He was born and raised in Liverpool and knew everyone and all about everything! He showed us all the great sights in Liverpool that had to do with the Beatles along with all the other Liverpool sights! He told us all kinds of stories about how he got to meet Paul McCartney and introduced us to the lovely lady who now lives in Ringo Starrs old house. Then we go to go to the place where the Beatles begun and we met Dave, the man who was there the night it happened and now works at the church. The tour ended up being 4 hours instead of the 2 we were expecting and at the end he dropped us at the place to get the best fish and chips in town! This was by far one of the best days I've had since being in Europe, everyone should go to Liverpool if you go to England! 

Here are all the Beatles pictures:

The hospital John Lennon was born in
The boys school Paul McCartney, and our tour guide went to
