Before John Lennon was a world-famous musical icon, he was a curious young boy who liked to play in the garden of the nearby Strawberry Field children's home. On this self-guided tour, you'll explore this corner of cultural history, and learn about the place that inspired one of the brightest young artists of the 20th century.

From the famous red gates (which were once stolen, and promptly returned by the unsuspecting buyer), you'll tour the inside of the house, and learn about its decades-long mission to help the vulnerable youth of Liverpool. You'll also hear plenty about John Lennon's affinity for the building, and even explore the gardens where he used to play – and presumably come up with early versions of hit songs!
