The Beatles Shop first opened its doors on Mathew Street in 1984. In the years since we have firmly established our identity on this world famous street, which is right in the heart of Liverpool?s city centre.
Upon descending the steps in to the shop, shoppers are greeted with the imagery and sounds of the Fab Four. Our shop features an original 1959 jukebox packed full of Beatles singles,and even a Beatles carpet! The shop boasts "the largest range of Beatles ?gear? in the world" ? and it?s true. There?s a plethora of Beatles stuff available ranging from t-shirts, maps, posters and postcards through to watches, toys, mugs and jewellery plus much more besides. As well as the present day merchandising the shop occasionally sells some original items, as well as having a permanent display of original memorabilia from the sixties.
The shop can be a constant hubbub of activity, as many Beatles fans use it as a meeting place for friends and pen pals, especially in the summer months. Some regular visitors even have their photos stuck on the ceiling by the doorway. One or two celebrities have ventured through the shops doors in recent years ? Ringo Starr, Sean Lennon, George Martin, Neil Aspinall, Carl Davis, Kevin Godley, Joe Walsh, Ian Hart, Aidan Quinn and many more have stopped in for a visit while they were in the city. The next time you?re in the area, stop in and say hello. - A Splendid time is guaranteed for all!
Places to Remember
Mathew Street can be found half way between Lime Street Station and the river, at the heart of our city. Still home to the cavern club, the street now has many beatle themed pubs to visit. The Abbey Road, John Lennon Bar and Cavern Club in particular. Perhaps a less well known Beatle connected pub is The Grapes, very near to our shop.
This was a local favourite of hte fab foursome and now features a great photo of the band sat in the pub, the frame itself hung under the spot the picture was originally taken! High up on the wall opposite the Cavern Walks shopping centre, a 1974 statue by Arthur Dooley can be seen. The children at the feet if this 'Lady' madonna are small dolls of the band, but Paul's figure is strangely missing and the words 'Paul has taken wings and flown' are now in its place. A verse from Imagine and a Passage Form The Bible were added nest to John's figure after he died.
