While the building which housed the original Cavern Club was torn down in the 1970s, the modern-day version of the venue which claimed to be the birthplace of The Beatles is located in the same street - Matthew Street - just a few doors away from where John, Paul, George and Ringo played their early gigs. A must-see for music lovers visiting Liverpool.
