What a great day. I would recommend it to anyone. Knowledgeable and interesting tour guides who could answer your questions and were really informative. Brilliantly organised and driver Dave was funny too. Really enjoyed this tour!

We visited recently on an organised tour- the only way to visit inside is on a pre booked tour with the National Trust. We had a really informative and interesting visit to the house, but on our minibus tour, the driver said he wasn't supposed to be able to give us a tour, but proceeded in telling stories the whole...

My sister and I stopped here while on a Beatles tour. Even just from the outside I could imagine John there as well as the struggles he endured. (Just down at the corner is where his mum was killed.) I would definitely recommend that you at least drive by this beautiful home.

Have been going to do this for years and the wait was worth it only 8 on our tour and my husband and Colin discussed Bob Dylan's visit. Colin is very knowledgeable and a fantastic guide. Well worth doing.

Really loved this tour. The guide (Colin) was extremely knowledgable about this house and the history and provided a really good tour. The house has, apparently been designed in exactly the same way as it was when Lennon lived here. There is also some of his Aunt Mimi's original furniture here. Check this out and you won't be disappointed! I'm... More

We had been meaning to do the tour of The Beatles Childhood Homes for ages and eventually got round to doing it. We are so glad we did. Colin the Guide is incredibly knowledgeable and even the most ardent Beatles fan will learn something on the tour. The house has been restored to its 1950s condition and the whole experience...

A must for Beatles fans. Starts from either City centre or Speke Hall. Book in advance for the minibus tour, which takes you to Paul's house for about 45 minutes tour - then onto John's for another 45 minute tour. Each tour led by curator, room by room, Loads of information from very well prepared guides, chance to ask questions... More

Been a while since we visited. Ok as some mention its just a house, its not just a house it was home to one of the greatest men to walk the face of this planet. If your a fan its impossible to go in and not feel the hairs on the back of your neck stand up.
