Airbnb lists George Harrison's 1949 childhood home for people to stay in

Thursday, May 23, 2024

The childhood home of George Harrison is available for people to stay in as an Airbnb.

The Beatles guitarist moved into the terraced house at 25 Upton Green in Speke in 1949 when he was six years old, and remained there until the 1960s. It was during his time at the house George met Paul McCartney and John Lennon, and the three held some of their first rehearsals there.

Wanting to share his passion with other music fans, Ken Lambert, from New Hampshire, bought the house when it went under the hammer with Omega Auctions in 2022. Since then, he has added a mural on the outside of the rear garden and added props throughout the rooms.

Ken told the ECHO: "I’m a massive fan of The Beatles - especially George, so that’s why I decided to buy the place. I spent a few months getting it ready in 2022 before opening it to fans, fixing the decor and making it more interesting for fans. We have added some great photo opportunities as well.

“It’s been great to share my passion with others and I love seeing people being able to enjoy it. Reading the reviews from fans, of people who have stayed overnight, is great. It’s nice to see so many people appreciate and love it as much as I do.”
