I have to say that I learned so much more about John and Paul and the fascinating stories that brought them together. I have so much more of an appreciation for the origin of the Beatles phenomena and how it all came to be. And...More

So fantastic to visit the home where John Lennon grew up. Stand on the little enclosed front door area and sing like John once did. You can feel the magic!

Our guide was great as he had a nice sense of humour. He made the visit very light and enjoyable. We are NT members and we enjoy these sort of venues more than the great houses and estates sometimes - the lives of ordinary people.

These buildings are so well maintained and looked after by the National Trust. They are not commercialised and the guides tell a great story.

To visit inside the homes of John Lennon and Paul McCartney, you have to go through the National Trust and you need to boom in advance as the numbers allowed in are limited. The cost is approximately £24.00 There is... More
Does it matter that this house, and Paul McCartney's, are essentially reproductions, or maybe stage sets for visitors? Is the satisfaction all in your mind? What about authenticity?

The fact that the original, actual furniture isn't still there did not lessen the impact of being inside the homes where John and Paul grew up and collaborated with one another. Just sitting in Paul's living room in the same... More
