George Harrison’s Chilhood House Now A Museum and Airbnb
The childhood home of George Harrison in Liverpool went up for auction in November 2021. A big Harrison fan named Ken Lambert bought the house and turned it into a “living museum” in honor of the late Beatle singer-songwriter.
The place is now available in Airbnb for other fans to stay in and enjoy. Lambert bid for the house and came with the idea to transform it into a museum after realizing that other Beatles member such as John Lennon and Paul McCartney already have theirs.
Lambert told The Post:
“Once I realized I was the winner [of the house], it was pretty shocking. I really started to think about what I was going to do with the property. I’m not a wealthy individual. It’s not like I go around buying up properties. I’m a Beatles fan, yes, but I am a big George Harrison fan specifically.
“I think it was a shame that George’s house had no relevance to millions of Beatles fans, but they’re waiting in line to walk into John Lennon’s house. George is my favorite Beatle. I want to respect his legacy.”
The historic home is located in the suburb of Speke. Harrison’s family lived in the house until he was 18 years old. Later on, it was used as a practice venue for the Fab Four in the 1950s, when the band were in their first evolution as the Quarrymen.
The Airbnb listing states:
“Walk and stay in George’s bedroom, where he first heard himself and the band on the radio! There’s a comfortable double bed and a large closet. Sit and strum a guitar in the same room that George, Paul, and John sat and rehearsed during the early years.
“Listen to old Beatles albums, on our retro standing record player — within a Beatles home!”
