Many tours take you by the house, but only the tour with the National Trust takes you inside. I highly recommend the tour, which also includes the childhood home of Paul McCartney. It is almost surreal to be walking through the same rooms, which have been designed in pieces true to the period of when John and Paul were just... More

See the place where John Lennon grew up, listen to the stories about his childhood and about how he used to scape from that place by that window... it is amazing. I just love this tour, it is very nice. Dont you forget of taking the famous picture by the gate!

I didn't think it was possible to go inside of Lennon's boyhood home but it is. Book the trip at the information center at the Albert Dock. You will also visit Paul McCartney's home. The Magical Mystery Tour only stops at the doorsteps of both houses so this is a must if you are a big Beatle fan and want... More

The guide was so informative. Couldn't believe I was honoured to go to a legend's childhood home. Brilliant!

If you are a Beatles fan please do the tour of John Lennon and Paul McCartney's childhood homes. You have to book ahead because they only allow a certain number of people on the tour...I think there were 15 of us. You book though the National Trust. I am a big fan of the Beatles having seen them when I... More

This National Trust owned property gives a fascinating glimpse into the early life of John Lennon. The guide we had was excellent, bringing the house to life for visitors. NB The only way to enter the house is via a National Trust mini-bus tour which includes a visit to 20 Forthlin Road, the home of Paul McCartney. There was a... More

We visited John's house after Paul's and I was so looking forward to this one as John was always my favourite Beatle. We were met by a very knowledgeable chap who gave us background info about John and how he came to live at this house - all delivered down the sideway of the house. We entered through the back...

This tour is a must do for any true Beatles fan. We visited both Mendips and Forthlin Rd with the National Trust tour on June 26th. I had been looking forward to this tour for ages, as last year we had done the Magical Mystery Tour, but this NT Tour is the only one that gets you actually inside the... More

Interesting to see where the Beatles, one of the greatest rock bands ever, grew up and lived. A very nice neighborhood on a side street.
