“Moving experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014

We visited both Paul and John's house, and it is interesting to compare and contrast. The fascinating thing about Paul's house is that it is full of his brother Mike's photos of the boys writing and rehearsing, shinning up the drainpipe and this brings the house alive. Guides at both houses are brilliant.

“Must see!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014 via mobile

We visited Paul's house and John's as part of the National Trust tour.

As a huge Beatles fan it was amazing to be inside Paul's house- the place where both he & John wrote some of the Beatles early hits. We saw a lot of tourists on the other tours who could only stand outside and take photos, so take the National Trust tour instead and see it from the inside too.

Definitely worth a visit if you are in Liverpool.

“Paul's home”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014

Our guide told us that about 100 of the Beatles songs were penned right at this location. What struck me most is that so many brilliant songs came out of the Beatles despite the lack of imagery to stimulate them. Penny Lane, Strawberry Field, not much else around.

“Great to SEE”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2014

This was a great tour and a great hjob of the historical society keeping this the way it was back when Paul was a child. The pictures on the wall were done by hs younger brother Michael, who seemed to catch the essence of their life.
