Booked through national trust - it's half price to members. You get picked up at Jurys inn hotel by Albert dock then go to johns house then Paul's. Only tour that allows access inside. Wonderful to stand in the bedroom they were their first songs in. COLIN the guide was brilliant

Thanks to Yoko Ono and the National Trust for keeping John's boyhood home open for all of us to see how he lived. The house is very well done up and the guide offered a lot of good information. A must see for a John Lennon fan.

On several of our last trips to the UK in the last 3 years (I bring my 92 year old mum back to the land of her youth, and my birth) we have visited Liverpool. Taking advantage of having a car, we drive to downtown Liverpool to Matthew Street, home of the Cavern. On the way out of town we... More

Yes, it's John Lennon's old home, and it is interesting to find out where these mega stars lived I suppose, but it seems odd having a bunch of tourists having their photos taken outside an average 3 bed semi :)

The guide, Collin, was so wonderful that you will learn way more than you might expect. Thank you for offering this tour. And thank Yoko Ono to purchase and donate this house!

If you like music history and culture I can't recommend this highly enough. Great tour guides walk you through a little part of musical history and bring the place to life. Loved it
