Photographer Edward Chambre Hardman and his wife lived and worked at 59 Rodney St, Liverpool from 1947 to 1988. Their gracious Georgian house is a time capsule of 1940s life - right down to the food in the cupboard!
59 Rodney Street, Liverpool (near the Anglican Cathedral)
From the shelter in the middle of the roundabout and onwards, most of the things mentioned in the Beatles' song are still there: the barbers, the bank, the fire station (slightly down the road). Penny Lane is the middle of one of Liverpool's suburban shopping areas and is well worth a visit for a taste of Liverpool as the Beatles knew it.
Catch the number 86 bus from town and get off at the Penny Lane bus shelter. It's all there.
This is a friendly, relaxed and comfortable hostel exclusively for women. From the swinging chairs outside in the garden to the multitude of kitchen gadgets (and free coffee, tea and hot chocolate), this is a place to enjoy.
