I visited with my wife during the week and as it opened to avoid queues.

Price - seemed quite pricey, considering it was an audio tour and not led by an expert; luckily we qualified for discounted tickets.

Tour - a few of the numbers on the audio guide could not be found while on the tour! Also, the background music/interviews/etc that were not through the headphones were sometimes too loud so that you could not hear the audio guide!

Duration - a couple of hours is more than enough.

we visited here yesterday after recommendations from my sister and her partner who visited here last year. We were there when it open as we had been told it could get really busy and we pretty much had the place to ourselves. Really interesting exhibits - great audio guide. The music playing all around it is really fun.

Highly recommended! I suggest booking on-line as the queue was very long (Easter Holidays - Tuesday). It takes about 2 hours if you walk around at leisure and read all the write-ups. You get a headset with recording that contains some very interesting facts.
Some great memorabilia - well worth a visit - a great story, my young grand-children really enjoyed it - they'd never heard of the Beatles until we visited.

The Beatles Story is a great place to learn the history of the Beatles in about 90 minutes. The space has been set up to re-create Beatle-related spots like the Casbah and Cavern clubs. The audio tour is really good. Must do if you have any interest in the Beatles.

Now displayed in the cellars around The Albert Dock in Liverpool. The story of the teenagers who grew up to become The Beatles who rocked all over the world from 1963 until 1970. The attraction has audio tour earphones and souvenirs from those years. Give yourself at least two hours to queue to get in and another two hours to enjoy it all.
