“Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

Went on a tour and came here as part of the tour, it is a house in a street which the National Trust now own. You have to book with the National Trust to be able to enter this house and it is only open certain times of the years but there is a contact number there to contact or look it up on National Trust web site

“misleading”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

although yes he did live here calling it his childhood home i think is misleading, a little research will tell you where he and George really spent their youth......

“Walking on Paul's Floor!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

I'd like to say we sat on his couch, but the furniture was not the same as that when Paul and his dad and brother lived there. Other families had dwelt there since. It was so neat, tho, to hear the anecdotes shared by the guide as told him by Paul. Loved this tour. We combined it with the Fab Four Taxi Tour, which we (as Beatles fans) highly recommend. Wonderful Tour!

“Great house and nicely restored”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

As a Beatles fan I really wanted to visit Forthlin Road. The house is great inside and you really feel it is like it would have been when the McCartney's lived there. The guide was great with a real enthusiasm.

“Ticket to Ride as a Day Tripper”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

Maybe you have to be a Beatles' fan to fully enjoy this visit; but it was so full of nostalgia and memories that we didn't want to leave!
Uncanny but enjoyable atmosphere and a good witty guide at the house, with great knowledge and information.
Be careful....only tickets bought through The National Trust give access inside the house....otherwise you have to stand in the road!
