Listen To The Story

The city of Liverpool is almost synonymous with the Beatles. Almost 50 years after the band split up, the place is a sort of Beatles Disney Land: there's a Beatles-themed hotel, a Beatles museum and plenty of shops with all kinds of Beatles merchandise. Fans come from all over the world to see where the story of the Fab Four all started — and this Beatlemania is bringing around  $104 million to the region every year.
