For more information: www.portsunlightvillage.com Port Sunlight is unique and those who visit for the first time are usually astonished at what they discover. It is argued to be the finest surviving example of early urban planning in the UK. The late 19th Century village was built by William Hesketh Lever (later Viscount Leverhulme) to house his soap factory workers at Lever Brothers which eventually turned into the global giant Unilever. Lever was a philanthropist with a passion for art and architecture and Port Sunlight is an enduring testament to the achievements of this remarkable man. The sheer scale of his philanthropy was unprecedented and the whole of Port Sunlight is now a Conservation Area and a major tourist attraction for Wirral. The village is set in 130 acres of what can only be described as beautifully maintained parkland with a mature treescape. Approximately 900 houses have been built along with some larger "principal" buildings. Nearly every building in the village is Grade II listed and two sections of the landscape are included in the English Heritage Register of Parks and Gardens of Special Historic Interest. Lever employed over 30 different architects in the building of the village and the result is an intoxicating mix of architectural styles enhanced by the parkland setting giving tranquil scenes of great beauty. Add to this some excellent public sculpture, one of the finest and largest war memorials in the UK and you have a truly amazing visit to look forward to.

Free to visit. The Piermaster’s House, 9 Albert Parade, was originally built in 1852 for the piermaster and his family. The piermaster was responsible for ensuring the safe passage of ships entering and leaving the dock at high tide. The house was one of four built on this site, and was the only one left standing following the heavy bombings in the Second World War. In 2003 it was transformed back into a wartime house, dressed with original period furniture and everyday objects like gas-masks and ration books reflecting the days of shortages and rationing.

251 Menlove Avenue, L25 7SA The 1930s semi-detached property, which belonged to Lennon's Aunt Mimi and her husband George Smith, is in Woolton, South Liverpool, England. Lennon moved there in July 1946 at the age of five from 9 Newcastle Road, in the nearby suburb of Wavertree. Lennon lived at Mendips after his mother, who was living with her boyfriend, was persuaded that it would be better for his Aunt Mimi and George to take care of him. He remained at Mendips until mid-1963 when he was 22 years old.

The school was previously known as two separate schools Dovedale Junior School and Dovedale Infant School but has since merged. It is Dovedale Primary which is probably best known as the school which George Harrison, John Lennon and Lennon's lifelong pal Pete Shotton, attended. In the 1950s it had a very good reputation as a 'feeder' school for Liverpool grammar schools such as Quarry Bank High School and Liverpool Institute for Boys. In 2001, John Lennon's widow, Yoko Ono, donated £25,000 for school refurbishments. In September 2015 the two schools formally merged management, and are now recognised as a single school by the Department for Education, known as Dovedale Primary School.

Lennon was born in war-time England, on 9 October 1940 at Liverpool Maternity Hospital, to Julia (née Stanley) and Alfred Lennon, a merchant seaman of Irish descent, who was away at the time of his son's birth. His parents named him John Winston Lennon after his paternal grandfather, John "Jack" Lennon, and then-Prime Minister Winston Churchill. His father was often away from home but sent regular pay cheques to 9 Newcastle Road, where Lennon lived with his mother; the cheques stopped when he went absent without leave in February 1944. When he eventually came home six months later, he offered to look after the family, but Julia—by then pregnant with another man's child—rejected the idea. After her sister, Mimi Smith, twice complained to Liverpool's Social Services, Julia handed the care of Lennon over to her. In July 1946 Lennon's father visited Smith and took his son to Blackpool, secretly intending to emigrate to New Zealand with him. Julia followed them—with her partner at the time, 'Bobby' Dykins—and after a heated argument his father forced the five-year-old to choose between them. Lennon twice chose his father, but as his mother walked away, he began to cry and followed her. It would be 20 years before he had contact with his father again.

12 Arnold Grove is a house near Picton Clock Tower in the Liverpool suburb of Wavertree. The house is the birthplace and childhood home of George Harrison. Harrison once said of the house, "Try and imagine the soul entering the womb of a woman living at 12 Arnold Grove, Wavertree, Liverpool 15. There were all the barrage balloons, and the Germans bombing Liverpool. All that was going on. I sat outside the house a couple of years ago, imagining 1943, nipping through the spiritual world, the astral level, getting back into a body in that house. That really is strange when you consider the whole planet, all the planets there may be on a spiritual level. How do I come into that family, in that house at that time, and who am I anyway?"

20 Forthlin Road, L24 1YP, a 1950s terraced house in Allerton, Liverpool, is the childhood home of Paul McCartney. The McCartney family moved here in 1955, and initially the family were happy in their new home. 20 Forthlin Road was an improvement on their former house in Speke, and both Paul and his brother Michael gained places at the Liverpool Institute, one of the city's best grammar schools. Sadly, however, Paul's mother Mary was to die of cancer after a short illness in October 1956, leaving her husband Jim to bring up the two boys on his own. Paul threw himself into his guitar playing. He would often play in the bathroom with its flattering acoustic. The McCartney's continued to live at Forthlin Road until 1965. Paul then had the money to buy Jim a nice house in the Wirral, and the move took place late at night to avoid souvenir hunting fans. 20 Forthlin Road then remained in private ownership until 1996 when it was bought by the National Trust.

On 7 July 1940, Starr (then known as Richard Starkey) was born at 9 Madryn Street in the Liverpool neighbourhood known as the Dingle. The neighbourhood was damaged by German bombing during World War II. His father, also Richard, and mother Elsie Starkey, rented a house at 9 Madryn Street for 10 shillings (£0.50) a week. His parents separated when Starr was three years old, and Elsie and her son moved to the smaller, less expensive two up, two down house at 10 Admiral Grove, which remained Starr's home until 1963 when he became famous.

Is the house in which Ringo Starr lived for twenty years before he rose to fame with the Beatles. Starr's infant school, St Silas Primary School, on Pengwern Street, was yards away from his front door. He was a sickly child and due to his many absences from school, was taught to read and write at home. A severe bout of peritonitis led him to spend much of his seventh year at the Royal Children’s Hospital. When Starr was 13 his mother Elsie married a Londoner, Harry Graves. The Starkey’s local pub, The Empress, where Elsie was a barmaid, adjoins Admiral Grove. The pub was immortalised in 1970 by being featured on the front cover of Starr's first solo album Sentimental Journey.

Strawberry Field was a Salvation Army children's home in Woolton, a suburb of Liverpool, England. The name of the home became world famous in 1967 with the release of The Beatles single "Strawberry Fields Forever" written by John Lennon. Lennon grew up near the home – one of his childhood treats was the garden party that took place each summer on the grounds of Strawberry Field. Lennon's Aunt Mimi recalled: 'As soon as we could hear the Salvation Army Band starting, John would jump up and down shouting "Mimi, come on. We're going to be late."
