Strawberry Field, the iconic site immortalised by John Lennon in The Beatles hit, ‘Strawberry Fields Forever’, has opened its iconic red gates to the public for the first time.

Previously the site of a Salvation Army children’s home where the young John Lennon played in the grounds, Strawberry Field will serve as a unique addition to Beatles tourism. The new site is home to an interactive visitor exhibition, community café, shop, calm garden spaces for spiritual reflection and - at its heart - a Steps to Work programme for young adults with learning disabilities and other barriers to employment

“The plan 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.”
