Me too Aspie.  I have an Aunt that lives in Scotland that said I can come visit anytime...I should get out there and somehow get over to England.  I will make it my mission.  I also have a friend who lives off the coast of England that said I can stay with her anytime.  It's just getting out there and all the money involved.  I will do it oneday though!

I'm also a Liverpudlian by birth (but live in Manchester these days).

I remember the first time I did all the Beatle sites - armed with an A-Z with them all marked out, and my Mum driving!

Had a cracking night out in Liverpool the other month, too. Visited both the Grapes and the Jacaranda. The Jacaranda really is amazing - absolutely crackling with atmosphere downstairs.

I have never visited a Beatles landmark, but I passed by the Bag 'O Nails while on a bus tour of London. That's it really.

If I say I went to a place in Boston, but I didn't know what it was called, would it be Boston Place? Would THAT count?

Liverpool was a dream come true for me:

Grosvenor Ballroom

Seaforth Hall

Litherland Town Hall

Neston Institute

The Art College

Gambier Terrace and the Cathedral across the way.

Percy Street

Ullet Road

Quarrybank High School

Liverpudlians were warm and welcoming. Make the pilgrimage, if you can.

Liverpool -- Mendips, Penny Lane, Strawberry Fields, Jacaranda, Matthew St., etc.
London -- Abbey Road, Marylebone Station,
NYC -- The Dakota gate, Strawberry Fields, Shea Stadium.
At Shea, I was working as a photographer and got to go down on the field.  I walked in from a gate in centerfield (I know, wrong way), and the crowd was roaring at the event, and I for just beyond second base where the stage was set up, and gave a quick wave over my head like they did getting into the getaway car.  Of course, no one was paying any attention to me, but it was fun.  :-)

I've been by the former Memorial Auditorium in Dallas. They played there on the '64 tour. That's the best I can do.  I thought seriously about visiting Abbey Road when I got abandoned by my "friend" in London about 15 years ago, but I thought I'd get lost ,so I didn't make it.  Now I wish I'd gone all the way to Liverpool.

Abbey Road for me, too.

I also want to include Red Rocks Amphitheater in Denver. When George Martin was recalling the talk he'd had with Epstein about how a sniper could have picked off any of "the boys" and escaped into the hills, I knew exactly what he was talking about. The rock monoliths stand all around the stone benches in the seating area, rearing black against the night sky, and it's undeveloped foothills behind.

I think it's way cool that I went to a concert where the Beatles played, albeit years before I moved here. (Seeing as I never got to see the real thing...)

Abbey Road. Just on the outside, unfortunately. (rolleyes)

And then I lived in Hamburg for a year. But for me, Beatles-wise, it is nothing you have to see.

Has anyone visited Beatles-Platz?  I think it was completed in Hamburg this year(?).  http://www.daylife.com/photo/02me66laFy6yx  I think the silhouette statues are pretty cool and unique.
