The semi-detached house was donated to the National Trust by his widow, Yoko Ono, and opened to the public this week.

The small bedroom where Lennon spent hours playing his guitar has been recreated, with 45rpm singles by Elvis Presley and a poster of The King on the wall. Lennon and McCartney composed The Beatles' first UK number one, Please Please Me in his Aunt Mimi's bedroom.

The house is close to his childhood haunt Strawberry Field - a Salvation Army children's home that he later immortalised in a song. Lennon often practised his guitar in the front porch while his early band, The Quarrymen, and later The Beatles, also rehearsed there.

The house has been restored to the way it looked when Lennon lived there in the 1950s and early 1960s.

Visitors will be able to enjoy a joint tour of Mendips and the former home of Sir Paul at 20, Forthlin Road.

Tours run from 29 March to 26 October from Wednesday to Sunday.

Access to the houses is by minibus tour only which leave from the Albert Dock and Speke Hall.
