We recently visited Liverpool and were so excited to visit the Childhood Homes of John Lennon & Paul McCartney, through the National Trust. The guide at Paul's house was fabulous. She showed us all the rooms & told stories about Paul & John and Paul's Dad & brother Mike. We sat in the living room where John & Paul wrote... More

I visited this National Trust owned property with some trepidation, never having been a fan of the '60s Liverpool sound. I was accompanied by 3 other 68-72 year-olds with still clear memories of the Fab Four phenomenon. The guide who showed us round Paul McCartney's 20 Forthlin Road home really made the visit come to life. Though she must have... More

My wife and I were on the Beatles bus tour. The bus stopped about 1/2 block from this home and had to walk to the location. John and Paul are the only one that live in nice home when young. Ringo and Gorge lived in the poor section.

Really pleased that we pre-booked this visit (several weeks before). Well organised minibus journey to from central location to both houses in small group. In both cases, the visit is made by the quality of the house custodians who are fantastic - a mine of knowledge, stories and enthusiasm for the houses and their part in John and Paul's (and... More

Recreated from pictures, the National Trust has made a true insight into the McCartney home before fame and fortune. Imagine all those, now famous songs, being penned on the very same spot. Would I recommend it. YES.

I can only feel sorry for the people who only took a trip to see the outside of the two Beatle homes but didn't go inside. The custodians at each house are fantastically knowledgeable and make the visit to a 'small semi in Liverpool' magical. I am mid 60s so can relate to the time period of this house, but... More

If you are in the area it is worth having a look at the house that Paul grew up in but don't make a special trip. you can only see the outside of the house.

We made a short visit here,viewing only from out side,as you can only go in via booking with the national trust in advance. A plaque identifies this house outside.

We visited on the Magical Mystery Tour. Took some memorable photos. A must see for Beatles fans! My original goal was to find it on our own but SO GLAD we did the tour! Not sure we could have found it. Plus the tour was just so informative!
