What Beatles "landmark" have you visited?
« on: October 14, 2008, 01:16:53 AM »

Have you been to any Beatles "landmark"?  If not, what Beatle places are you dreaming of visiting?  Either way, tell us about it.   :)

I've only been to one:  Abbey Road in St. John's Wood, London.  This was about 10 years ago.  I got pictures of the street sign, the famous crossing and the studios.  My friends and I crossed Abbey Road the same way the Beatles did, and the pic of that was taken on my friend's camera.  I never got a copy of that photo, unfortunately, and I think my friend is having a hard time finding it now.  But still, my memories are wonderful.  That day was a dream come true for me and I would enjoy revisiting Abbey Road again someday.

I would also love to visit Liverpool, but I don't think that's going to happen any time soon.

I've only been to the Dakota and Strawberry Fields in New York City.  (I have a picture from there on the user pictures thread)

However I would give anything to go to London/Liverpool.  My friend's family actually lives in Liverpool so they all know me as the crazy Beatles fangirl and she always brings me back souviners from there :)

I'm so lucky being a Scouser, so everything possible associated with the Beatles and Liverpool as well as Abbey Road, London.

Wow..... I am currently turning green with envy!!
That is extremely awesome Ged 8)

And all of you guys did a good job on landmark-visiting too, very cool (wow, An Apple Beatle, you've been to loads of 'em! 8) )

Unfortunately I've never visited a Beatles landmark, and I've never even been to England :B I would really-really-really like to visit Liverpool and London... once we can afford it, KE and I will definitely go (here's hoping (grin) )

Went to the Cavern last year and stood next to the John Lennon statue on Mathew Street. Also sat next to 'Eleanor Rigby' on the bench down the road from the Cavern. Would like to go to Menlove Avenue and hope to get the chance at the end of the month - going to the Cavern again to see a band called 10 Reasons To Live - they're a Liverpool band too ;D

I should add that I want to visit Strawberry Fields in Central Park as well.  I have been to NYC once, but it was a whirlwind trip and I unfortunately did not have the time to stop by the park.  I bet it's a pretty emotional place to be.  :(  Hopefully I'll see it someday.

Central Park Strawberry Fields and I don't think this counts but I did go to Shea Stadium.  Obviously there is nothing there that says anything Beatle related, although they did flash on the big screen for a few seconds a clip of The Beatles playing there.

I think Shea Stadium should count, and Candlestick Park as well.  Any famous Beatles concert venue works. :)

It was intense being there, a couple of other friends and I were in tears there!

been round Liverpool 3 times now, I think I liked Sefton Park best. And the Liverpool Institute from the back cos I'd seen a Mike McGear photo of it and it still looked the same. I loved the way everything was closer together than I thought they'd be. I walked it all (well all I wanted to see) in 3 days once. Used to go round St George's Hill, Weybridge years ago before it got really private. Would love to look round Friar Park if it was ever open to the public, but don't feel the need to stand outside and look at the gates! Not done any of Beatles London. Not fussed about US or Hamburg sites  -  sorry guys!

Hiya Apple Beatle - i'm a blue for my sins (Just like Macca - now matter how loose the connection might be) :)

Here's a page from my website, i've done loads of these and made some friends of these fans.

http://beatlesmemorabilia.piczo.com/?g=36017947&cr=3


Look me up if ever you're in town where they were born.

I once heard a taxi driver took some Canadians to Sefton Park, telling them it was Strawberry Field because he didn't know where it was and they photographed it - disgusting - and he charged them 100 pounds for a 2 hour mini tour.

Having said that, the organised tours rush you and there's little time for personal and individual photo calls as they're bound by time - gotta get back quick for the next tour etc. They only do about 20 of the sites and some are drive-by, just pointing out of the window as the coach is too big to stop in the street or make awkward turns into small side streets.

I am thinking of going to Germany in January, so I could visit Hamburg now that you`ve reminded me of the place!
