It is hard to believe that a tour of a small, ordinary house could be so interesting and moving. John Lennon lived in this house from the age of five until he became famous as a Beatle. The National Trust tour guide brought the house and the memories of John to life. A must for any Beatles fan.

We were picked up by minibus from Speke Hall in the afternoon and taken to Mendips, then onto Paul McCartneys home then back to Speke Hall. The tour was very intersting and informative, especially if you are a Beatles fan! You get to go into the houses, which are set in the 1960's era as they were when John Lennon... More

Very interesting nice to look at from the outside but do the National Trust Tour and you can go inside and walk through the rooms where John Lennon lived and wrote songs with Paul McCartney

In order to tour the home, you must go through the National Trust. I booked two months ahead of time knowing that I would only have a small window of time to visit this area. It is truly stepping back into the sixties to tour this house, but I did not get the feeling of it being "John Lennon's House"... More

I was hosting a Korean girl through CouchSurfing during the Beatles week and decided to take her to visit their childhood homes. Not a huge fan myself, but I found the postcodes, programmed the satnav and set off. I was surprised at how nostalgic it made me feel - it was quite special to see a significant & influential part...

Ok but not a day out. Only go if you are an obsessive Beatles fan or have a short period of time to kill.

Mendips has a very strong feeling of being Mimi's house. There is little sense of John other than in his bedroom and the porch, and it really hits you in both of those places, also just outside the porch where so many well known photos were taken. I have a new-found respect for Mimi after this.
