Strawberry Field, the iconic location immortalised by John Lennon in The Beatles hit, ‘Strawberry Fields Forever’, is the site of the former Salvation Army children’s home where John Lennon, who lived near by with his aunt, found solace as a child playing in the grounds.
Liverpool’s Strawberry Field, the iconic site immortalised by John Lennon in The Beatles hit, ‘Strawberry Fields Forever’, opens its iconic red gates to the public for the first time in September 2019. It will serve as a major new visitor attraction and an authentic and unique addition to Beatles tourism.
Previously, the site of the former Salvation Army children’s home, where John Lennon found solace as a child playing in the grounds, Strawberry Field now consists of a training/work placement hub for young people with learning disabilities and other barriers to employment. The new visitor experience includes an authentic inter-active exhibition with media guide; a café and shop; and the gardens of John’s childhood, a space for spiritual reflection.
Strawberry Field offers the visitor a thought-provoking tour of the gardens John Lennon knew and loved; a place where he could escape the problems of his young life.
The benefits of spending time in fresh air and with nature, are a bonus for all types of visitor, whatever their reason for coming to Liverpool. Explore, unwind and dream in the place, which inspired one of the 20th century’s greatest songwriters.
