How well do you know the Cavern Club?
Since 2019 we have been giving visitors the chance to learn even more about the most famous club in the world on a unique behind-the-scenes tour which fully explains The Cavern Club’s history, exploring the myths.
This free, 45-minute tour – led by our experienced guide Dale Roberts – runs every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 10.30am.
Dale will take you on a Magical Mystery Mathew Street Tour that not only offers a glimpse ‘behind the curtain’ at the Cavern – complete with anecdotes and stories – but also gives you the chance to get photos and an experience outside of the norm.
The tour is announced from the front stage at 10.25am so all you need to do is come into the club, your guide will then take visitors up to street level where they will learn more about Mathew Street’s history before entering the Club through it’s original entrance.
Our tour finishes on our Cavern Live Lounge stage, where you can stay and enjoy the Live Music following the tour.
