Brilliant tour as someone who lives in Liverpool and has since my Cavern days loved the Beatles I found this a fascinating tour - Lennon was obviously a Middle class boy , whereas you can see the McCartneys struggled to make ends meet

We saw this as part of the Beatles tour, not much to see, it's owned by the National Trust, nice to see it. This is in the Alberto's part of the City.

Grew up on The Beatles cartoons and music. Take just a moment to reflect upon how incredibly important what these guys have done for music and life in general and it's almost overwhelming. I stood outside Paul's childhood home in a state of awe thinking about what it would have been like. I've felt the magic and it's real. Very... More

It is only accessible via the National Trust tour, but really great. I love the stories the guide told, he really takes you back in time. The inside looks like on old pictures, and there are a lot of them taken by the brother Mike McCartney. So you see the pictures hanging right there where they had been taken. That's... More

In the backyard, the black drainpipe leading to the upstairs is how teenage Paul used to sneak in and out a night, hoping he did not land in the toilet whose window he'd climb back in.

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.
