Strawberry Field is a space to explore, unwind and dream in the place, which inspired one of the 20th century’s greatest songwriters. The iconic site immortalised by John Lennon in The Beatles hit, ‘Strawberry Fields Forever’ is now open to the public for the very first time. 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.
Through the authentic, inter-active exhibition where “nothing is real!”, visitors can expect to learn more about the history and heritage of the Strawberry Field site, complete with Media Guides in multiple languages. The exhibition includes stories from the former Salvation Army children’s home and about how John Lennon came to write the famous song, Strawberry Fields Forever. The tour continues through the gardens, where the media guide follows in John Lennon's footsteps and explores the place he used to play as a child. The gardens offer a calm space for reflection and an opportunity to explore spirituality. Visitors can enjoy a peaceful walk and find solace in this place where John could escape the problems of his young life.
There's a gift shop that stocks a wide range of unique and authentic merchandise from our handpicked suppliers; many of whom are local to Strawberry Field. The ‘Imagine More’ Café is a place to socialise and enjoy a selection of delicious dishes, with ingredients sourced from local producers. Serving breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and hot drinks, the café is a welcoming space for visitors to relax and reflect whilst they enjoy the view into our gardens.
The site promotes responsible tourism through the Steps to Work programme, which helps young adults aged 18-25 with learning difficulties and other barriers to employment to learn new skills and gain work experience. The programme is fully-funded by the visitor exhibition, café and shop sales and the aim is for Strawberry Field to become self-sufficient in time. Trainees undertake an eight week work readiness course at Strawberry Field, followed by three 3-month work placements with local employers; there is also the opportunity for trainees to take on a work placement at Strawberry Field in the shop, visitor exhibition, café or garden. Throughout the programme, trainees and their families are fully supported by the dedicated Steps to Work team.
