History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
John Lennon lived at Mendips from 1945 until 1963, with his Aunt Mimi and Uncle George. Among the rooms on display is John's bedroom, the lounge, where he composed many of his early songs, and the kitchen, which has been restored to reflect how it would have looked in the 1950s.
Visits to both Mendips and Paul McCartney's home at 20 Forthlin Road are only through the National Trust by pre-booked minibus tour. There is no direct foot or vehicle access to either property.
Tours depart from Liverpool city centre or Speke Hall, depending on the time of year. Please see details on the National Trust website. Though both properties are owned by the National Trust, an admission fee also applies to Trust members.
