We drove past Paul McCartney's home on our Beatles and City Centre sightseeing tour. Plenty of coaches had dropped people off to see the house, but no entrance without a National Trust ticket. Must be annoying for the neighbours!

Seeing the homes where the Beatles once lived was really interesting. It was a great tour and made us feel quite honoured to see some of these places. It is a quick visit, enough time for a couple of photos and imagine what it would...More

We did a tour with black cabs and this was part of the tour. You are not allowed to take inside pictures and they gather up your purses an lock them up. The tour is informative and interesting. 5 stars

There's nothing exciting here, but it is Pual's former home. So Beatles fans are required to visit! Very safe area and most Beatles tours will bring you by. I recommend the Fab 4 Taxi Tour.

Almost every Beatles fan will want a photo op in front of Paul's childhood home, but the experience really is not much more than that.

expect to get emotional when you are in front of Forthlin Road # 20, when you realize that all those hits were created behind these tiny windows.

This does not look much from the outside - inside is seen only with a National Trust tour. It looks just like many. Often a tour taxi or other trip there. Not inspiring and did not bring the history to mind - o not bother...More

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.
