From Liverpool's Cavern Club to Aztec pyramids...

1961 saw the Beatles first take to the stage at Liverpool's Cavern Club. Nearly 50 years later, the celebrated venue has been reborn in Second Life.

The club's Liverpool home is one of more than 85 locations that have been added to the World Map of Real Places in Second Life created by Second Life developer New Business Horizons (NBH).

Second Life users can now take a tour of the area made famous by The Beatles in the 1960s and visit the Cavern Club to listen to the band's classic hits.

Thanks to the World Map of Real Places, Second Life users can visit a range of real world locations created by different developers.

Users travel to the locations - which range from Ireland to Mexico - using the teleport function in the virtual world.

If you're feeling a little bit more adventurous, you can take a trip to Mexico and check out (and clamber all over) some Aztec pyramids as shown above.

Or you could just explore the stunning scenery that the country has to offer.

NBH is hoping to expand the number of places that are featured on its map and is looking for more recommendations of real world locations within Second Life to include.
