In response to the UK Government’s recent roadmap announcement, we plan on safely re-opening our iconic red gates and welcoming visitors once again from Monday 17th May. Tickets must be booked in advance here and you can read about our Covid safety measures here
Strawberry Field, the iconic site immortalised by John Lennon in The Beatles hit, ‘Strawberry Fields Forever’, opened its iconic red gates to the public for the first time in September 2019.
Previously the site of a Salvation Army children’s home where the young John Lennon played in the grounds, Strawberry Field now serves as a unique addition to Beatles tourism. The new site is home to an interactive visitor exhibition, café, shop, calm garden spaces for spiritual reflection and - at its heart - a Steps to Work programme for young adults with learning difficulties and other barriers to employment.
