Beatles Story

The Beatles Story, Liverpool has added a Cantonese language option to its multimedia guides, becoming the twelfth language now available at the award-winning attraction.

Cantonese is the second language to be introduced at The Beatles Story in 2018, after the introduction of Korean in March. The new addition positions The Beatles Story as the most internationally friendly attraction outside of London.

Founded in May 1990, The Beatles Story is the world’s largest permanent exhibition purely dedicated to telling the story of The Beatles and welcomed record visitors for the fourth year running with over 300,000 visitors in 2017.

The attraction is located in the Fab Four’s hometown of Liverpool on the stunning UNESCO World heritage waterfront at the Albert Dock, and takes visitors on an immersive journey through the lives, times, culture and music of the world’s greatest ever band.

To cater for its largely international audience the top attraction offers multimedia guides in a range of languages, also including English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Mandarin, Polish, Russian, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese and Korean.

Visitors whose preferred language is Cantonese will now be able to hear the story unfold though complimentary ‘Living History’ multimedia guides, featuring commentary, interviews and bonus material; all beautifully narrated (with subtitles) by John Lennon’s half-sister, Julia Baird.

The Beatles Story becomes the first attraction in the North West of England to offer a Cantonese multimedia option and outlines the attraction’s commitment to ensuring that its growing number of international visitors receive a valuable and memorable experience.

Diane Glover, Marketing Manager at The Beatles Story, said: 

“We are delighted to be introducing a Cantonese language option to our multimedia guides. With increasing numbers of visitors from across Asia we feel this addition is important to ensuring that each visitor has a positive experience at our attraction.”
