This is a must for any Beatles fan. It allows you to look into the minds of the fab four and see what they did as children and how this influenced their music. Unfortunately we went out of season so we could not go inside.

Go and have a look but i wouldnt bother going in. Its interesting just to walk the roads around the place and stroll up to Quarry Bank School a 10 min walk up the hill and through the park. The place has not changed in 60 years and retains all the charm it would have had when the beatle left... More

Visited here with one of my Daughters last year and it proved to be really interesting. We went on one of the Taxi Tours and the driver gave a very informative commentary on the history of Paul and his family. Definitely worth a visit especially if like us you were and still are a Beatle's fan.

To stand outside an ordinary suburban house and be totally overwhelmed by the realisation of how significant this modest property was in shaping the world of music - this is a feeling I'll never forget ...

If you are a fan, it is amazing to know that Paul really lived here. Even 50 years ago, I can remember the thrill of hearing them play and knowing that one day I would certainly grow up to marry Paul. Well, of course, I didn't but it was a gas from the past to see the house!

I booked this trip for my husbands 70th birthday. After visiting Mendips (John's) Home we were taken by our lovely driver Joe. I have also reviewed John's home. We were greeted by Shelia and once again she told us so many lovely stories about Paul, his family and meeting up with John. There was so much to see. Wonderful photo's... More

A lifetime thrill to see just where Paul McCartney lived and thrived in his formative years. The authentic interior and decor aid the visitor's imagination in formulating an image of life back in the Mersey Beat era. A wonderful experience and insight into the birth of the Beatles and the world-wide musical revolution that would evolve and ensue later. Well... More

The National Trust runs this tour to Paul McCartneys childhood home. When you visit it is as if time has stood still. If you are a Beatle fan it is great to see how the family lived all those years ago and a must see. The guide was really informative.

Unfortunately we seemed to be following a bus tour around and it was very busy. We did not go inside. Still nice to see the house where Paul McCartney grew up

A typical 60's home with all the retro furniture in place. A bit overwhelming to think Lennon & McCartney actually stood in the living room.
