Very atmospheric. I'm not usually spiritual but felt Lennon there. To tread the boards where he lived was great. Thank you Yoko for giving us this treasure.

No parking , lots of fans hanging about outside, you can book a tour with a bus trip quite expensive , myst for Beatles fans though.

We pre-bought our tickets from The National Trust and have to say this is any John Lennon fan's dream trip. Outstanding to be in the rooms where he composed some of the most famous songs ever written, and to get such a feel for his time growing up there with his Aunt Mimi. The memorabilia brings tears to the eyes... More

We visited Liverpool earlier this year and we did the Magical Mystery Tour which was excellent. However at this house and Paul Mcartneys, all the tour bus does is stop for a few minutes outside. There is no entrance to either house or garden. Our guide on that bus told us that if we wanted to look around inside both... More
