We've had a very full day today. We started by leaping on the Hop On Hop Off Bus for a one hour city tour. We got off the bus at the Beatles Centre and managed to get the last 4 seats on a bus tour of Beatles sights. We had a great guide who appeared to know Paul McCartney well and claimed to play John Lennon's best mate in the NBC film on the Beatles.

We stopped outside George Harrison's house, Strawberry Fields. Paul McCartney's house and in Penny Lane. It was a very informative tour. We ended up in the Cavern Club, had a beer and bought a few souvenirs.

The Beatles have certainly put this place on the map!

We then raced down to the Mersey River and jumped on for a one hour Ferry ride on the Mersey. After that we ambled along the docks and had an audio guided tour of the Beatles Museum. This was outstanding.

After a nice feed on the water front we ambled home just before 9.00pm.
