There's not a lot to see here, just the house and a plaque on the hedge outside. Having said that, it's a must for any Beatles fan who wants to see were it all started. Apparently a lot of early Beatles songs were composed here.

We were allowed to see the exterior of Paul's house. Being a big Beatle fan I had to see it. Guide indicated to us the room where many songs were composed.

There are a few ways of visiting Pauls childhood home in Liverpool. By car, on foot or city tours. By far the most informative one would be through the National Trust at a cost. Well worth a visit.
