Fabulous to see the childhood home of such a star. Surreal experience. Provides a nice touristy photo opportunity.

I was quite overwhelmed to realise I was stood on the same spot that John Lennon once did. We parked around the corner and drove past the spot where his mum died. Would like to do the National Trust tour next time.

This is a great place and brilliantly restored and kept by the National Trust. It is like stepping back in time and when you walk in to John Lennon's bedroom it feels that he had only just walked out. The guide was fantastic, a real fan who has connections with the music industry and has met some of the Beatles... More

I'll probably be in the minority, but I'm rating this attraction as average. Viewing where John Lennon lived is interesting, but, like visiting Abbey Road, once you're there, you're there, and perhaps wondering why? What the Beatles offered was music, and anything that adds value to an understanding or appreciation of how they produced what they did, and in so... More

Having been to New York to see the Dakota building and Strawberry Fileds in Central Park I wanted to see this house where John Lennon had lived. The guide Colin Hall was very good and a good knowledge of John Lennon and the rest of the band. Well worth the tour . We used the National Trust tour to visit... More

Good to see the differences in how the Fab4 lived. Well kept and you could imagine how John lived there. When we were on the Fab4taxi tour (Nov 14) Gareth shared much more information of John's family in respect to location's of John's Mum and family members.
