Strawberry Field

Strawberry Field Liverpool Gates

Strawberry Field, the iconic site immortalised by The Beatles and John Lennon, now serves as a unique addition to Beatles tourism, with responsible tourism at its heart.

Book Your Tickets

Through the exhibition, learn about the history of the site; including stories from the former children’s home and about how John came to write the famous song. The café is a place to socialise and enjoy delicious dishes and the shop stocks a wide range of authentic merchandise. The gardens, where a young John Lennon played as a child, offer a calm space for reflection.

Helping thousands of children and inspiring one of the Beatles’ most-loved songs? Not a bad resume! Get a ticket for Strawberry Field’s remarkable exhibition, and discover the local history contained behind the ruby-red gates of this famous Salvation Army building.

Use a handy multimedia guide to explore archival footage, and admire photographs that document the history of the facility and its most famous young visitor – a must for Beatles fans!

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!
