Do I need to book a ticket?
From 19th July 2021 to date we are operating at full coach capacity of 53. Booking in advance is highly recommended to avoid disappointment, but not essential. Tickets can be booked on-line here. We also encourage anyone paying on the day to use card or contactless methods wherever possible.

Will I need to wear a mask on the tour?
In accordance with current Government guidelines, the wearing of a mask or face covering is no longer mandatory for staff or customers.

Does the Tour include free entrance into The Cavern Club at this time?
Yes, your Magical Mystery Tour boarding pass will permit you free entrance into the Cavern Club on the day of your tour (excludes annual International Beatleweek Festival dates (24 – 30 August 2022)).

Your boarding pass also entitles you to 15% discount on food when you dine at The Cavern Restaurant (located opposite The Cavern Club)  plus a free exclusive souvenir postcard at the end of your tour.

What sanitisation measures will be in place?

  • The Royal Albert Dock Liverpool provides hand sanitiser stations throughout its estate for visitor use and we kindly ask that you do use them wherever possible.
  • We have increased our coach and ticket office cleaning regime.

Increased sanitisation will remain in place until the foreseeable future.

How will the coach be ventilated?
Our coaches are not open-top. The air conditioning system pulls in fresh air to circulate rather than recirculated air.

What other special measures are in place?
It is our company policy that all staff are tested for covid twice a week and the results submitted to management.
Staff testing will remain a company policy in place post 19th July until further notice.

Will music still be played along the tour?
