This National Trust Tour of John's home was unbelievable. I just couldn't believe I was able to walk through this iconic home. The house has been preserved and restored so beautifully and the guide was informative. I would do this tour again if I ever return to Liverpool.

Interesting and fascinating to view this ordinary house that was the childhood home of one of the Beatles. Good to know that it is still possible to visit such a landmark

The title says it all. it's in a much more upmarket place than I had anticipated and it's well-maintained. Make sure you book in advance if you want to go.

Our guides were fantastic. Gave a clear view of challenges facing The young musicians in the 1950s. Passionate guides gave great detail on both the musical and everyday lives of John Lennon, Paul Mccartney and families.

I visited the childhood home of John on my 'Beatles pilgrimage' with my mum. We had such a fantastic time and learned so much. It was an incredible experience and well worth it. We would visit again.

Gives an insight to John Lennons childhood and into life in1960's Liverpool. Only viewable inside via National Trust but you can do Paul McCartneys home on the same day.

Picked up at a designated local hotel by minibus. Pleasant driver played Beatles songs on short journey. Very lovely lady guide took us around the house giving us the background history.

The guide in this home obviously adores Beatles history and takes pride in telling you about John Lennon's boyhood home.
