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.

I lived one bus stop down the road from Forthlin road until I left aged 32. I used to think this area better than the area one stop away. I was wrong. My home was slightly nicer. But this was still a good home in a lovely part of the city. Liverpool in the days when Paul lived here, had... More

From start to finish, an excellent and informative tour of Paul McCartney's childhood home by the custodian, Sylvia. My brother and I visited from Ireland for a couple of days and the tours of Mendips and Forthlin Road were the highlights! Would highly recommend to all Beatles fans! As a bonus, my brother even got to play the piano in... More
