George Harrison's childhood home

Local nameGeorge Harrison's childhood home
LocationLiverpool, UK

12 Arnold Grove is a house near Picton Clock Tower in the Liverpool suburb of Wavertree. The house is the birthplace and childhood home of former Beatle George Harrison.

It is a small terraced house in a cul-de-sac, with a small alley to the rear. Harrison's parents, Harold and Louise, moved to the house in 1931 following their marriage. The rent was ten shillings a week. Here their four children were born—Louise, Harry, Peter and George.

Harrison recalled the only heating was a single coal fire, and the house was so cold in winter that he and his brothers dreaded getting up in the morning because it was freezing cold and they had to use the outside toilet. The house had tiny rooms —only ten feet squared — and a small iron cooking stove in the back room, which was used as a kitchen.
