How great to visit where all our favourite songs were conceived. The piano that Paul used is there for anybody who can to play it. The National Trust must be applauded for saving this for the nation and the world of music.

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.

I think the points about the toilets are most relevant; the content of the tour is fine, nothing controversial or likely to cause any offence. I'd think three is a little too young, but you know your own better than anyone... More
