Liverpool’s Beatles Story attraction has broken through the 250,000 visitors-in-a-year mark for the first time. The Albert Dock attraction says it welcomed 254,451 visitors through its doors in the 2013/14 financial year. This is a big rise on the 241,265 figure for the previous year. Beatles Story bosses say the London Olympics impacted on visitor numbers during 2013.
However, the latest figure is still a significant improvement on 2011/12 which saw 249,832 people visit and is a big increase in 2009 when less than 200,000 came. In July last year, the Beatles Story saw its busiest day ever when staff welcomed more than 1,996 people through the doors, which was nearly 222 visitors from across the world every hour. Congratulating his staff, Martin King of the Beatles Story, said: “It is a testament to all the hard work and dedication from the great team of staff here and we look forward to breaking even more records in the coming year ahead.”
