Visited Mendips along with Forthlin Road on the excellent Beatles Childhood Homes Tour. This was my second tour of these fascinating properties, and equally as informative and enjoyable as the first visit some two years ago. Colin (the guide) provided a great commentary and Mendips not only provides an insight in to John Lennons early life, it also offers a... More

Considering most Americans would only go to Liverpool because they're Beatles fans, this is a must-see. Not much to see but you can see it's a nice house in a nice part of town. Not much to see but I suppose if you're doing a pilgrimage for the Fab Four, you have to go.

The NT did a great job of restoring this house to '50's era, and the guides and bus operator were great. The tour group when "packed" is only 15 and they keep it a sensible size so you can appreciate what is was like growing up in Liverpool in the 50's.

I took my partner to Liverpool as he is the biggest Beatles fan I know. The National Trust tour of the Beatles' childhood homes is a must. This is the only tour which allows you inside John's home Mendips- and Paul's home on 20 Forthlin Road. We did the Magical Mystery Tour first, which takes you to Penny Lane, Strawberry... More

Something a bit out of the ordinary happened when I was drove past John Lennon's childhood home: someone was opening the gates to the home and parking her small Peugeot inside the property. Then she took her key and entered the very house where Lennon grew up and disappeared inside. Apparently, it was the caretaker's daughter, who was staying there.... More

We visited Mendips as part of the National Trust Beatles' Childhood Homes tour. I can't describe how wonderful it was to walk through John Lennon's childhood home. The caretaker had so many wonderful stories to tell about the home. Seeing the house where John grew up has really given me a new-found respect and understanding of him. It was one... More

We did the National Trust trip which met at Jurys Inn Liverpool and took us in a mini-bus to both John Lennon's and Paul McCarneys boyhood homes. Wonderful nostalgic adventure at a bargain £9 (as we are National Trust members).

as above the only thing wrong is you don't get nearly enough time there as its a fixed time visit you need at least twice as long if not more

As with the McCartney house a moving,evocative and atmospheric visit. Worth any number of tv/ film documentaries - if you're a fan do it!
