A must for all Beatles fans, as the house is as it was in John Lennon's youth. The guide was lovely, and very informative.

What an interesting and enjoyable visit so glad I'm a national trust member so found out about it . Colin the curator was amazing and very entertaining . If you're a Beatles fan don't just stand outside the gate book through the trust and go inside .

I have lived nearby for many years, & the guide told us many things we did not know about J.L's childhood.

Visited Mendips along with Forthlin Road on the excellent Beatles Childhood Homes Tour. This was my second tour of these fascinating properties, and equally as informative and enjoyable as the first visit some two years ago. Colin (the guide) provided a great commentary and Mendips not only provides an insight in to John Lennons early life, it also offers a... More

Considering most Americans would only go to Liverpool because they're Beatles fans, this is a must-see. Not much to see but you can see it's a nice house in a nice part of town. Not much to see but I suppose if you're doing a pilgrimage for the Fab Four, you have to go.

The NT did a great job of restoring this house to '50's era, and the guides and bus operator were great. The tour group when "packed" is only 15 and they keep it a sensible size so you can appreciate what is was like growing up in Liverpool in the 50's.

I took my partner to Liverpool as he is the biggest Beatles fan I know. The National Trust tour of the Beatles' childhood homes is a must. This is the only tour which allows you inside John's home Mendips- and Paul's home on 20 Forthlin Road. We did the Magical Mystery Tour first, which takes you to Penny Lane, Strawberry... More

Something a bit out of the ordinary happened when I was drove past John Lennon's childhood home: someone was opening the gates to the home and parking her small Peugeot inside the property. Then she took her key and entered the very house where Lennon grew up and disappeared inside. Apparently, it was the caretaker's daughter, who was staying there.... More

We visited Mendips as part of the National Trust Beatles' Childhood Homes tour. I can't describe how wonderful it was to walk through John Lennon's childhood home. The caretaker had so many wonderful stories to tell about the home. Seeing the house where John grew up has really given me a new-found respect and understanding of him. It was one... More
