Enjoy a Liverpudlian Lunch at Strawberry Field: John Lennon’s Garden escape

About this Experience

Let us take you down to… Strawberry Field: John Lennon’s childhood haunt that later inspired one of The Beatles biggest selling hits ‘Strawberry Fields Forever’.

Strawberry Field and the original Victorian house were gifted to The Salvation Army in 1934. It was opened as a children’s home, for nearly 70 years, it gave some of Liverpool’s most vulnerable children a refuge from turmoil and unhappiness – a safe, calm, and spiritual home. It was on these grounds that a young John Lennon, before Beatles fame, came to play, reflect, and escape the post-War streets of Woolton.

Those days shaped him and inspired his work within the Beatles as an adult. Strawberry Field was later immortalised in the famous song, ‘Strawberry Fields Forever,’ where he explored those more innocent days of escape that could counter the later complexities of a life lived in the public gaze.

Enjoy an unparalleled multi-sensory exhibition that sets the scene in post-War Britain, offer fascinating insights into the origins of the original Victorian house and shows how it paved the way for John Lennon’s songwriting genius, in collaboration with his fellow Beatles.

As well as being a world class visitor attraction, Strawberry Field is also a Christian Community of spiritual exploration, retreat and pastoral care. A place where you can take time to rest and refresh yourself.

During your tour with us you will enjoy a two-course traditional Liverpool lunch in this unforgettable setting.
