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

Many insights to be had being in his home. Marvelous job done in restoring the property to represent the interiors. A must visit for Beatle fans.

As a massive Lennon fan, i had been wanting to come here for years. The custodian, Colin, was very nice and knowledgeable. He really brought Aunt Mimi and John to life. I cried as soon as I entered - very emotional. The person I was with was very hungover from the Cavern and vomited in the front garden, but I'm... More

Whatever you do, book the tour! Standing outside is simply not the same as going in the house! To stand in the very room where JL became the legend he was/is! Any true Beatles fan will want more than just a photo of Mathew Street. This is a must see tour. I've done it twice now and it won't be... More

'Mendips', John Lennon's childhood home, was given to the National Trust by Yoko Ono on the condition that it should be furnished as it was in the late 1950s - a visit is therefore less about the Beatles and more about John's formative years and influences. The only way to see inside is as part of a guided minibus tour... More

waste of time just looking at the house from the road, go on the National Trust tour of John and Paul's houses listed under Trip Advisor as Beatles childhood homes (I think),

We drove to the house using the sat nav.Easy to do and to find.would advise parking round the corner off the main road.The house looks straight from the 60's. Nothing special to look but has such a history that you can almost see John Lennon looking out the front door at you.A must see if you are a Beatles fan.

So interesting and somehow moving to hear of John's early years and see the bedroom where he dreamed his dreams. Well organised by NT, who transport small groups on a timed basis in a minibus. Well worth a visit.
