Magical Mystery Tour Film Locations


Here are some Magical Mystery Tour places that I've visited in Cornwall (England) in September 2008.

Plymouth Hue (Plymouth, South England)
This picture was taken in September 1967, when the Beatles were filming MMT (the clothes they are wearing are the same ones the were on the movie)
There's a footage you can watch here:
And here's me, some 40 odd years later

The Atlantic Hotel, Dane Road, Newquay, Cornwall TR7 1EN
Telephone: 01637 872244 Fax: 01637 874108.

Not far from Plymouth, is the lovely Atlantic Hotel in Newquay, where the Beatles stayed for 3 nights whilst filming Magical Mystery Tour. 

At the back of the hotel (facing the sea) you will find  
The Huers Hut 

On the Hut's floor, I found this very interesting plaque (note the word Semolina and Hubba Hubba). Could this have influenced John for the lyrics of I'm the Walrus? Which was released months later?

Just yards away from the hut, you will see the steps where the beatles stood for some promo pics

Also in Newquay, theres is commemorative site to the Magical Mystery Tour
The inscription reads : "To commemorate THE BEATLES Visit to NEWQUAY from The 12th to 15th September 1967. Location scenes were filmed in and around this resort for the group's 'MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR'

Watergate Bay, Cornwall 

This is where Mr Bloodvessel danced with Aunt Jessie
