Telegraph article on a Japanese fan who wants to create a replica of John's childhood home on a plot of land that belonged to Yoko's grandfather.

Im from Liverpool and its really nice to read all the positive comments on this site about the city and how much people enjoyed being there. I have been working in Brisbane Australia for six months and as lovely as it is, i can't wait to get home next month.

I always felt really lucky being able to visit the Beatles sites whenever i wanted and spending most saturday nights in Mathew St! I have walked down that street hundreds of times but i still get that buzz of being somewhere really special every time i do. You can never walk down there without having to stop to let tourists take a photo next to the John Lennon statue outside the Cavern. I always offer to take the photo so everyone can get in on it.

Its a far from perfect place but for anyone who's a big Beatles fan i'd totally recommend trying to get there. If you soak up the atmosphere, You will really feel what its was like for the boys to have grown up there

I don't work for the Liverpool tourist board by the way!! I'm just proud of the city      

I was in Liverpool a few years ago - my wife and I stayed at the Adelphi - and apart from taking in a Ken Dodd show(we thought it would never end), we spent the following day in the city centre and at the Albert Dock, and even though it's not the original Cavern, I could have spent all day there just soaking up the atmosphere.

We're from Glasgow and are hoping to return again soon and visit the Beatles Story down at the dock. Unfortunately, the queue was too long for us to hang about last time - and it was mainly made up of young foreign tourists which is really encouraging.

We'll be making a point of visiting the Cavern again on our next visit. I'm quite fond of Liverpool and it seems to be embracing its Beatle heritage, which it absolutely should do. London also has a claim on the Beatles but it can't match the appeal of the Fab Four's native city.

The home sold for £150K at auction.

Also, the Liverpool Echo has an article with photos on the Beatles' childhood homes (scroll past the sports story at the top).

I don't think I ever cross-posted this here. I visited the childhood homes in 2010 and posted a load of photos on another thread. I had to be sneaky because they don't allow interior shots.

Also bonus Madryn Street/Casbah/Liverpool shots, and some of Hamburg on another page. Good memories.

The Casbah was great. An incredible sense of time, place and presence, and an hour of pure entertainment by way of Roag Best's presentation.  Not to be missed if you go to Liverpool.
