It's a real nostalgia trip back to the 50's. We were even given an apple from a tree in the garden that John himself had planted all those... More

I grew up in Liverpool, and have passed John's house many times. This year, we decided to take the tour of John and Paul's houses, as having joined the National Trust, the tickets were cheaper.

A great little experience, joined the NT trip from a Jury's Inn on the Albert Dock. Plenty of information supplied by the drive rang house guide. Well worth the experience.

A driver picks you up and drops you off at John's home. Then a docent gives an excellent introduction and answers questions. Afterwards you walk around on your own. No indoor photos allowed, only external. Well worth it for Lennon fans.
