For £23.00 per adult, one can take The National Trust tour of John Lennon’s and Paul McCartney’s childhood homes, reputed to be one of Liverpool’s must-do attractions for any Beatles fan. For the cost, one gets transportation to and from and an interior look into each house with an informative guide, but no photos allowed. This Beatles fan attempted to... More

Really interesting visit to the childhood home of John Lennon. The guide was really informative and it was great to look round the house especially John's bedroom and to see where the 'boys' practiced. The house is furnished as it would have been when John lived there. A must for Beatle fans.

We did not go inside the house just wanted to see where John Lennon grew up. There was a bus tour just ahead of us which made it busy

A must see if you are a Beatles fan. Lennon lived the life of luxury compared to the rest of us when he lived here. As you go upstairs, remember, he held onto this rail as well !

Being able to visit this site was amazing...thanks to the National Trust and Yoko Ono for providing it! The guide, Colin, was very friendly and informative. If you are a Beatles fan at all, this is a must do.
