Strawberry Field, Liverpool will open its iconic red gates to all in July 2019.      

This exciting new commissionable heritage attraction will complement the other significant Liverpool Beatles attractions such as the award-winning The Beatles Story, the Cavern Club and the Magical Mystery Tour. The site is set to become the final missing piece in the jigsaw that will now make the Beatles tourists’ visit to the city complete.
 
Immortalised in 'Strawberry Fields Forever' this site of the former Salvation Army’s children’s home in Liverpool is part of British heritage. 

Strawberry Field offers a vibrant visitor exhibition consisting of an interactive exhibition exploring the site’s history and links to John Lennon's childhood and the iconic song, a stylish café as well as gardens for spiritual reflection and to trace the steps where Lennon once played.

Remaining true to the tradition of giving young people every best chance to succeed in life, Strawberry Field is perpetuating this legacy of care and support through a new training hub for young people with learning disabilities. The Strawberry Field site weaves together educational, cultural, heritage and spiritual elements in one site to continue inspiring future generations to come.

“The plans to open Strawberry Field to the public for the first time - so people can see a unique exhibition about the home, how and why the song was written by John, and allow visitors to explore the grounds as John did as a child - is very exciting.”
