I’m sure it must have been mentioned on here before but visited John and Paul’s childhood homes recently and found the experience quite moving. It helped (no pun intended) that I was on a group of genuinely interested and engaged Beatles fans – one of the guides remarked that the previous group had seemed bored.
I found it to be very tastefully done, and with a nice bit of social / historical context added by the husband (John’s home) and wife (Paul’s home) guides.
Fantastic Mike McCartney photos of ‘our kid’ on display at 20 Forthlin Road.
Only thing I would maybe change is in incorporating a brief (non-disembarking) tour of prominent landmarks on the way. For example, we went along Penny Lane but I only realised this when overhearing the driver. But I guess there are countless other tours which cater for this.
I’d done the Beatles Story museum on the Dock before and we went again. It was fine, but was stuff I was overly familiar with. The house visits though were superb and will stay with me.
