We had a gret guide who had sat in the garden as a girl waiting to see Paul. She was full of Liverpudlian wit and anecdotes which really made the visit. Great to walk the same floor boards as Paul.

This is a simple house on a housing estate but it is a must see if you are in Liverpool and you are a Beatles fan like myself. All the Beatles sites in Liverpool are worth the effort to visit in my opinion.

Booked with the National Trust, this way you get to go inside the house, tour guide gives an insight to the childhood years spent by Paul McCartney at 20 Forthlin Road. If you are interested in the history of the Beatles then this is a great insight into their early years.

The Kool thing about Paul's is the inside has been put back the way it was originally. This was done because Mike McCartney had many photos of the home when they lived their. It's another emotional experience to be in the house knowing all the Beatles practiced in the home.

We visited Liverpool earlier this year and we did the Magical Mystery Tour which was excellent. However at this house and Paul Mcartneys, all the tour bus does is stop for a few minutes outside. There is no entrance to either house or garden. Our guide on that bus told us that if we wanted to look around inside both... More

This is Paul McCartney's boyhood home. An anonymous, believed to be Yoko Ono, donor bought it. It is now a part of the registry in Liverpool so it is owned by the gov. You can tour inside. We did not find this out in time to get an appointment since they are limited in numbers. Still cool to see. Every... More

The council house formerly owned by the McCartney family is now in the safe hands of the National Trust. Anyone can look at it from the outside, but what makes a visit meaningful is to step into the building and learn more from the excellent guide about what life was like for Paul and his family in the late 1950s...
