Strawberry Fields – One of the most iconic stops on the tour is Strawberry Field, the site that inspired John Lennon’s dreamy anthem “Strawberry Fields Forever.” Originally a Salvation Army children’s home, Strawberry Field was a place of imagination and solace for a young John.

Visitors can explore the grounds and the new visitor center, which offers exhibits and insights into the song’s creation.
Eleanor Rigby – The tour continues to St. Peter’s Churchyard, where you’ll find the gravestone of Eleanor Rigby.

The gravestone, located near where John and Paul first met, serves as a touching memorial to the song and its themes of loneliness and compassion.

Each site is accompanied by a hit song, playing along while you take in the sites of where it all began.
