News that there is a collective coming together to ramp up the Mathew Street area should be welcomed. As should the point that not enough is made of the global interest in the Beatles.
This is perhaps confirmed by a snapshot from the user generated tourist website, tripadvisor.co.uk, which shows the top two local visitor attractions to be John and Paul’s old houses. The Casbah Coffee Club, were it all started, is in third spot.
The Cavern, however, comes in at number eight, just behind the Walker Art Gallery, with the Anglican Cathedral, Anfield and St George’s Hall sandwiched in between at numbers four, five and six. For those interested, the Albert Dock is number nine and the Philharmonic, hall not pub, make up the top ten.
