It was really strange to be in the same house where John Lennon lived and to see similar things in the property to those I had at home as a child

I was only 2 years old when John passed, but as this was our third trip to Liverpool, this is something I just had to do as I've always been a bit of a fan. It was nice to walk round his childhood home, being told stories of what happend years ago and what the area used to be like.... More

The guide, Colin, is a masterful story teller! Listening to his vivid description of Lennon's life was like experiencing a documentary. The interior is beautifully preserved and perfectly captures a middle-class lifestyle at that time. Don't miss this if you have the opportunity!

As a National Trust member we still had to pay extra for this privelege - and it was worth every penny! Yoko brought this house which hadn't been altered and gave it to the trust- Thank you Yoko! As Beatles fans during our youth we could feel the homely atmosphere in this home- the guides were passionate and told us... More

The National Trust visit is the only one that gives you access to this amazing time-capsule. Superb local guides give unique insight in to the Beetles early days. Our guide was a teenage 'groupie' at the time before they 'made it' internationally and full of fantastic anecdotes!

While others have spoken about how moving it as to be in John Lennon's room, the aspect I found most interesting was the look into post war Britain. While the USA had a boom period in the 1950s, Britain took a long time to recover from the devastation of WW II. Seeing this house, as well as Paul McCartney's house... More

These combined tours of John Lennon and Paul McCartney's childhood homes are fascinating for lovers of the Beatles because of the wealth of stories that are bound up with these houses, which have such great significance for their later life and work. In addition, the National Trust have done such a beatiful job of recreating both properties as they were... More
