I am a huge Beatles fan as i'm sure most are. You definitely have to stop by the house John grew up with his Aunt & Uncle. I did not go in - because it is only open certain day (?) BUT at least stop and take pictures.

The house is like a time capsule and still decorated and furnished as it would have been in the 50s/60s when John Lennon lived there. The gentleman who guided our group round was very knowledgeable and seeped in the history of the place. There was nothing he didn't know about the house, JL and The Beatles. We were surprised to...

Tour pick up is at Jury's Inn at Albert Dock around 10-15 mins walk from city centre. Thoroughly enjoyed the tour, Custodian and guide Colin was just brilliant, telling his stories, drawing you in and really added to the experience. As a lifelong John Lennon fan I couldn't quite believe I was standing in his bedroom! I'll never forget it.... More

This was one of the highlights of the trip. Do the trust tour so you can go in the home. To actually be in johns home he lived in as a child is a Beatles fan dream come true.

We worth it for the Beatles fan. I booked only a week out and got a ticket. The tour includes Paul's house also and the guides are a husband and wife team. Very nice indeed. Excellent.

Moving experience for a lifelong Beatles fan. Brilliant tour from custodian Colin. You can only go inside the house on the National Trust tour and you are taken in a small group so it's very special.

Combined visit to both Beetle's houses via National Trust ( only way to get access ) who pick u[ from the Jury Hotel in the docks. Much original, more restored. Beautifully done and as with Macca's ( brother Michael's photos ), a number of items of personal memorabilia not seen outside the house. Once more our guide is an adoring... More

We toured the INSIDE of the house John grew up in--I still can't believe it! Through the National Trust you can book this tour that takes you inside the childhood homes of John and Paul. If you read a lot about the Beatles, these addresses our in your head and you know that so much occurred in these homes in... More

My wife and I visited here without going on any of the tours. We paid £3.70pp for a day ticket on the bus from Liverpool City Centre which passes through Toxteth, Allerton, Woolton before finishing at Halewood. As long as you have a map/sat nav then it's easy to do and saves a lot of money. This bus ticket also... More
