AMESBURY: The Antrobus Hotel
At the beginning of May 1965, The Beatles were on location for filming the movie "Help!" near
Stonehenge on Salisbury Plains. They arrived in Amesbury on May 2nd, stayed in the
Antrobus hotel, filmed on 3-5 May and left the hotel on May 6th.
The hotel is still there and has a special Beatles room where you can spend the night.
Here are some pictures of the room now and the boys, having breakfast in the hotel around 3-5 May 1965.
You can see the breakfast room on the right picture above, at the point of the red arrow.
Actually The Beatles stayed in 2 rooms, this one and another, the hotel created this 'Beatles Room',
which is decorated with pictures and history!
AUNT MIMI's place
In 1966, John bought a house for his auntie Mimi, near Poole, on the south coast of England. Mimi lived here until she died in 1991. After her death, Yoko ordered the place to be torn down.
There's a hole in the fence, behind it, there's still an empty spot. (photos taken in 2008).
