Music break itineraries

The Cavern Club, Liverpool

Explore England’s musical heritage by partying the night away at iconic live venues, visiting the houses that rock stars once called home, and browsing old-school record stores on a music-themed city break. Relive the ‘Madchester’ scene where the spirit of the Hacienda lives on in underground rock and electronica club nights across Manchester; pick up a classic Bowie album on vinyl in London’s ‘golden mile of vinyl’ on Berwick Street and climb aboard the Magical Mystery Tour bus to see Liverpool through the eyes of the Beatles.
