Published Sep 13, 2019Strawberry Field, the Salvation Army gardens in Liverpool made famous by the Beatles song "Strawberry Fields Forever," is finally opening to the public as a tourist attraction.
The space will open tomorrow (September 14), and in addition to the gardens, it will feature a visitor centre, café and shop. There will also be an interactive exhibit about John Lennon's early life.
Formerly the site of a children's home, Lennon used to visit the space as a child in Liverpool. Though frequently a stop on Beatles pilgrimages, the gardens have only been visible through a closed red gate until now.
Lennon's sister, Julia Baird, told the BBC that Lennon considered Strawberry Field "his special place."
