My parents and I are huge Beatles fans. The only way to get inside John Lennon and Paul McCartney's childhood homes are with the National Trust and this is made abundantly clear, so I don't understand people complaining about it not being good/a day out etc. - if you want to get inside then book on the NT tour.

If you do the Magical Mystery Tour, you will pass the house, but you won't be able to stop and view. To go inside you have to prebook the special tour with the National Trust, which also visits 20 Forthlin Road - Paul's home. The NT have converted Mendips back to how it looked when John Lennon lived there with... More

Being a Beatle fan for almost 5 decades now, I must say it was so joyful to tour John's childhood home. It was sad and exciting at the same time. The stories told by the tour guide were fantastic. You could almost imagine John, as a child, entering his home and calling out to his Aunt Mimi. You could imagine... More

Visited John's home on this trip. Sad story attached to his childhood. Great trip. The bus tour is a really great way to get to see the Beatles story.

There is a few ways to see John's house. If you have a family and can not afford one of the many trips then this is a easy house to find. You can stand outside and you just drift back to the Beatles era you can just imagine (no pun) John stood on his door step. You can also book... More
