The house is well preserved but it is a shame that you cannot access the house freely. It is easy to find and I am sure extremely interesting inside.

Suggest you rear up on the story wher Jon's mother was killed in a traffic accident 20 yard from the house. This is a museum and booking in advance essential. Restricted opening hoyrs for a few at a time. We could only view from outside....More

We stopped outside John Lennon's house during our Beatles and City Centre coach tour. Just an ordinary semi-detached house. Apparently you can book a tour through the National Trust as it has been preserved in its original state.

As with Paul McCartney's house in Forthlin road make sure you book the national trust tour which allows you to go in. This lovely house has been restored to show how it was when John lived here, there are some old photographs and original furniture...More

Saw this on a Beatles coach trip. Bought by Yoko Ono and given to the National Trust! Only allowed in if you have applied for a ticket!

An emotional trip down memory lane, especially having visited Strawberry fields and learning of John's connections there and his family story. Very interesting!

Mendips was John Lennon's boyhood home and a Beatles fan must see and do. The tour was very informative and interesting. No pictures allowed inside and they collect your cell phones,bags and purses upon entering. Overall don't miss seeing it.

There's nothing really exciting here, but it's John's former home with his Auntie Mimi, so Beatles fans must go. We learned that, although in the care of the National Trust, Yoko bought the home years ago to preserve it -- and still owns it.

John Lennon's home from 1945-1963 is a nice photo opportunity for Beatles fans if they are trying to put together a collection of Beatles memorabilia. Other than that, it is just a house in a nice neighborhood.

The only way to see the inside is (I believe) to book a tour through the National Trust.
