Beatles Liverpool Landmark Strawberry Fields Opened to the Public for the First Time
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."
