Sorry to say it but it is what it says on the tin,a house, there's really not much to see here apart from a couple of blue plaques one on the wall and one on the house itself.

This visit is a complete waste of money. Everything inside, has been put in place for the visitor. It is very questionable as to what inside the house was genuine. I would not waste your time, there are far better Beatles attractions, which are free...More

Even if you are not a Beatles fan going on the NT tour is still worthwhile. Bus takes you from Jury's hotel and you get an hour with a very competent guide and freedom to view the house and lots of mementos. No photographs allowed...More

Just loved seeing all their homes. This one was interesting because his Mom was killed just a few doors away in a fatal accident. Very sad. Paul's mom also died when he was young which was another reason he and John became very close.

We did the trip with the National Trust, as we’re members. It’s the only excursion to John’s house which allows you inside. The custodian of the house, Colin Hill, is very knowledgable and excellent at telling the story of John’s time at the house.
