The Cavern Quarter is the area around the famous Cavern Club where The Beatles played on numerous occasions in their early career. The main street is called Mathew Street where the rebuilt Cavern Club is located and links to Temple Court and Rainford Gardens.

It is visited by thousands of tourists a year and includes the Cavern Club, Beatles store and several pubs formerly frequented by The Beatles. A statue of John Lennon can be found outside the Cavern Pub, a statue of Cilla Black can be found outside the entrance to the original Cavern Club and a statue of Eleanor Rigby can be found on nearby Stanley Street. There is also the Cavern Wall of Fame which lists all performers that have appeared at the club on individual bricks.

Historically Mathew Street was the centre of Liverpool's wholesale fruit and vegetable market.
