Visiting both John and Paul's homes was moving and informative. Comparing the two highlights the differences in their family backgrounds - and rather gives the lie to John claiming working class hero status! The tour guides at both spots are fantastic - great stories to...More

didnt go in but stopped outside on a coach tour, it is now owned by the National Trust, so you have to [pay to go in and look around, which I think is £24, a bit on the expensive side

Stopped as part of our Fab Four taxi tour to see this rather nice semi-detached house, which seemed to offer a little stability in the turbulent early years of John's life. Nice blue plaque on the wall - apparently the house can have one because...More

Saw the house from outside, quite expensive to visit inside, so unless you are a major John Lennon fan quite pricey for a relat7small house
