This is Paul McCartney's childhood home. Much more happy than John's home, I think. There was love there, and I felt it. Growing up in a musical family made Paul the musician he is. If you love the Beatles, this tour is so worth taking...More

Full access into Paul McCartney's childhood home. A must see! Furnished as it was when he lived there, full of his brother's personal photos, history preserved.

If I had known we could have toured inside with advanced booking, I would have gone for it. But in any case, this was a stop on our one-day cruise port in Liverpool, through a 1-day Beatles tour. The tour was amazing, and my Father-in-Law,...More

It’s Paul McCartney’s childhood home. What more can be said? If you’re a fan, it’s a must see. We were picked up near the Albert Docks by the NT van. Very friendly and cheerful driver drove us to John’s house (another review) and said he’d...More

stopped by here on a tour so never actually went in, it is owned by the National Trust and costs £24 to go in and loom around, which seems a bit steep,

Stopped as part of our Fab Four taxi tour. Good to see where the Master lived. Nothing pretentious, but the neat and tidy property of a proud family. Outside only as the National Trust weren't playing ball today.

I think you have to be a member of the National Trust. Only did the Magical Mystery Tour which visits Forthlin Road but you can't go in. Entry is with National Trust only. Hope this helps.

You should be able to book online, but not on the day itself. This caught me out, so I turned up at the meeting point and there was thankfully space for me to join.

I think the points about the toilets are most relevant; the content of the tour is fine, nothing controversial or likely to cause any offence. I'd think three is a little too young, but you know your own better than anyone... More
