Iconic Strawberry Field Will Open to the Public for the First Time Ever

Sunday, August 05, 2018

“Strawberry Field”, the famous Liverpool landmark that was immortalized by John Lennon, will soon be open to the public for the very first time.

The site of a children’s orphanage that was frequented by the famous Beatle is being revitalized by The Salvation Army, which bought the Gothic Revival Mansion from a wealthy merchant’s widow in 1934.

In addition to making the location a training and work-placement hub for young people with learning disabilities, the restoration will also include a new Lennon exhibit that will function as a tourist attraction.

Attending the ground breaking ceremony was Julia Baird, the late singer’s half-sister. To commemorate the day, she buried a time capsule and praised the initiative.S
