Musical beginnings

Imagine frying a Spam fritter or two in this perfectly preserved slice of 1950s Liverpool life! This unassuming yet neat and tidy house is where one of the Fab Four lived with his doting Aunt Mimi from the age of five to 23. He sometimes practised his guitar on the front porch. He also co-wrote Please Please Me, among other famous songs. To explore the rooms of this modest home, as a Day Tripper you’ll need to buy a Ticket to Ride a bus tour.
