Though chosen as the European Capital of Culture for 2008, Liverpool is even better known for its musical native sons, the Beatles. With the opening of a Fab Four-themed hotel and a Beatles museum doubling in size, you can get your fill of all things John, Paul, George, and Ringo. If, however, you still haven't had enough, you can visit the club where the band was discovered.
Hard Days Night Hotel: Some days are harder than others, and warrant a splurge. And at the Hard Days Night Hotel, they know how to make you "feel alright". The Beatles-themed hotel takes Beatlemania to a new level of sophistication, where art from the "Shannon Collection" is flawlessly incorporated into the decor. The hotel officially opens February 2008. Rooms start at £105 (about $175; check XE.com for current exchange rates).
The Beatles Story: The Beatles Story museum, which has entertained guests since 1990 with interactive exhibits and audio guides, is doubling in size. Located in Liverpool's Albert Dock, the Beatles Story covers all aspects of the band, and you can take a whirlwind tour of their lives, from young lads to international superstars. Admission costs £12.25.
The Cavern Club: Though it claims to be one of the most famous clubs in the world, the Cavern Club's notoriety isn't derived solely from its previous shaggy-haired performers. The venue continues to host musical talent nearly every night, and you may just catch the next generation of musicians waiting for their chance to shine. Come have a drink and sit where Brian Epstein (music manager who introduced the world to the Beatles) first saw the boy band that would later become a legendary sensation. Entrance is free during the day.
