A Beatles Journey: Penny Lane to Strawberry Field

About this Event

Penny Lane, a fairly typical suburban shopping street in the eastern suburb of Mossley Hill, became world famous when it featured in a Beatles song of the same title.


We'll begin the tour with a walk up Penny Lane and see many of the places mentioned in the song including a bus shelter, a barber shop and a fire station.

You'll discover why the street name caused the council embarrassment and which Beatle had connections to St Barnabas Church and how.


Next we'll take a short ride to Forthlin Road and see the childhood home of Paul before continuing to Mendips, the childhood home of John. Although this wasn't his first home, that was in Wavertree, this is where he spent most of his childhood. Why was that?


We'll end our tour at the the iconic Strawberry Field - Strawberry Field and the original Victorian house were gifted to The Salvation Army in 1934. In 1936 it was opened as a children’s home for girls later accepting boys. From then on, 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.


Strawberry Field holds a special place in the hearts of Beatles fans the world over for inspiring the song ‘Strawberry Fields Forever’. The song is based, in part, on Lennon’s childhood memories of visits to the Salvation Army children’s home to play in its suburban gardens. The gardens at Strawberry Field were a place of peace and refuge for the children where they could escape and enjoy themselves away from a turbulent world. It was in these gardens that John as a child found a quiet spot where he could play with friends, climb trees and reflect. Now you can do the same and escape from the busyness of the world.


This tour is not to be missed - Let's share some memories!

About The Host: Heygo started as a way for co-founders John and Liam to keep exploring new places. As avid travellers themselves, they wanted to help people stay connected with the world and for those in the travel industry to continue doing what they love.They believe that travel is an incredibly important way to break down cultural barriers and understand the world through other people’s eyes. They also recognize it is often a privilege reserved for the few. For many people, hopping on a plane half-way around the world is out of reach and comes with serious consequences for our planet’s health.John and Liam realised that there needed to be a way to embrace the culture of other countries in an environmentally conscious way; to still travel when family obligations makes it difficult to get away; and to keep exploring even when an injury or disability means travelling is harder.So that’s why they created Heygo - a travel specific live-streaming platform. One that would allow local guides to share the places they know best with the hope that it can bring people around the world closer together.
