The Cavern Quarter, as it is now called, is based around Mathew Street, and yes I know there is only one T in that. As I alluded to in my introductory page on Liverpool, it is a blatant attempt to encourage tourism to an area essentially associated with the Beatles. Actually, I don't have a problem with that at all. In fairness, it is done in a reasonable way.

This wall is a working part of a standing building as opposed to other monuments. Each brick shows a group famous in the 1960's who played here when the Merseybeat sound was the largest force in world pop music. There are a few other bricks of later bands from the 90's who also played in the world-famous Cavern Club just opposite. Although not the original club, it is still on the same site and there really is a lot of pop music history here. Fittingly, a statue of the late John Lennon oversees the wall. Yes, it is touristy, but it is still worth a visit for any self-respecting musician or music fan from wherever you may come.

Address: Mathew Street, Liverpool.
Directions: Follow the numerous signs for the Cavern Quarter and you cannot miss it.
