A stroll to other Beatles’ sites takes us to Whitechapel where Brian Epstein’s shop was located, Leigh Street, where John and Cynthia Lennon held their wedding reception and Slater Street where John and art-school pal Stuart Sutcliffe loved to hang out.
In Seel Street, see the Blue Angel where The Beatles enjoyed after-hours jam sessions before a stroll to the Anglican Cathedral, where Paul McCartney auditioned as choirboy. Next Gambier Terrace, where John and Stu once shared a flat and then legendary pub Ye Cracke in Rice, John’s favourite watering hole before a final stop at the Philharmonic Dining Rooms, a frequent late night haunt of the lads.
