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

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.

During My FabFour Beatles Tour I got to Visit John Lennons home was an amazing experience to see where he grew up and get a photo outside his home for a memory.

I took the National Trust tour of Mendips - the childhood home of John Lennon. It was Fabulous. Colin, the tour guide, was so interesting! He and his wife (who does the Paul McCartney childhood home tour) had actually lived for a while at Mendips. I've been a Beatles fan for 50 years and this was my dream trip. Seeing... More

Great place to visit. The custodian gives you a really interesting insight to post war liverpool and the kind of city, family and environment in which the Beatles grew up-a great experience

The house was beautiful, our guide Colin was very friendly and took a lot of pride in showing us around. Had a giggle when I saw the Brigitte Bardot pictures, Lennon was a typical lad lol. I would recommend this trip to everyone.
