Even if you're not a big fan of the group then a look back in time as to a way of life & culture will be a interest, It's only a small house, but its how many of us (older) folk use to live. Enjoy a trip down memory (rather than Penny) lane!

Very middle class home for a working class hero, in comparison to the homes of the other members of the Fab 4 The National Trust have done a great job keeping the décor etc truly authentic

Owned by the National Trust now, along with Paul McCartney's old family home. Cost £23 per person (non-Trust members) for about 2 hrs 30mins tour inside both houses with knowledgeable guides/custodians of the houses. No photos allowed inside the houses but you can take pictures outside. A must for any Beatles fan!

The trip to John Lennons childhood home was fab! The national trust guide was great and provided good information which gave visitors a good insight in Johns childhood. To see his school reports and childhood drawings was amazing. When travelling to the house on national trust bus the driver pointed out childhood play areas of John.

The Mendips home ( owned by the national trust and now supported and commandeered by Yoko, of course) is quite beautiful, with floral stained glass windows and a lovely cream colored paint overall. A nice setting on a pretty street, as well. You must book a visit through the trust, however, so only the facade can be viewed on the... More

I'm lucky enough to be an American-born Beatles fan who now lives in the Merseyside area, so I've done this tour a number of times. I highly recommend this tour for Beatles and John Lennon fans. The custodian is a Beatles fan and is enthusiastic and informative. The home has been restored to how the home would have been when... More

The house was on my bucket list for a long time and did not disappoint with evoking a poignant and slightly emotional experience. I was alone in Lennon's bedroom for a couple of minutes and it felt surreal to imagine (sorry for pun) what had happened or been dreamt up in it. Colin, the guide, was full of anecdotes and... More

The custodian brought the tour alive. He was a mine of interesting information. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Make sure you book through the National Trust prior to the visit as that is the only way you will get in.
