We really enjoyed our visit to Mendips, where the custodian brings together the first beginnings of the Beatles as we're knew them. He allows you in, as Paul McCartney was first allowed in , and let's you leave as a well informed guest. Brilliant

Great to see the house where John Lennon lived as a boy. There's a lot of artifacts to see in this house, like John's school photo, and school reports, as well as some of his writing and drawings. The guide was fine, but we were the last tour of the day -3.15, and I felt a little rushed at this... More

You really feel as though you have stepped back in time. So much is original and everything is of the period John was living there. It is quite moving.

To visit Mendips is to walk in the footsteps of those who used to live here - John Lennon, Auntie Mimi and Uncle George, Cynthia and Julian - and their many visitors including John's Mum Julia (who was knocked down and killed just down the road), his 'little friend' from the council houses Paul, Brian Epstein and, more recently, Yoko...

This tour is well worth every minute and cost. The driver of the bus was really entertaining playing appropriate Beetles tunes like Penny Lane when we passed the area. My trip was early June but the memories of the guides at both houses were so very informative. Husband and wife team complimented each other and the tour. This was a... More

We took a cab tour called day's trippers. A nice and well-versed-in-all-Beatlestuff guy took us touring about the homes and schools and many other places where the famous four lived, studied and so on. Very emotional. He played Beatle's music while he told us hundreds of anecdotes. Unforgetable. From Lennon's house we took some leves from the fence.

Visiting here was part of a short tour including Paul McCartneys home too. The guide was interesting and the house has been preserved / refitted to John's time there. It is a nice little tour to go, taking about 2.5 hours and they play Beatles songs in the tour van.
