There are a few ways of visiting Pauls childhood home in Liverpool. By car, on foot or city tours. By far the most informative one would be through the National Trust at a cost. Well worth a visit.

Our guide Linda was so friendly and down to earth, she made the tour very relaxed and friendly. You cant fail to be inspired by visiting and visualising so much history of Paulmand John composing in this house.

Wonderful visit inside Paul McCartney's home in Liverpool. Owned by the National Trust it is very interesting if you love music and the Beatles. Paul McCartney lived at 20 Forthlin Road from 13 to 22. More than 100 Beatles songs were composed there = Love...More
