Tittenhurst Park

This Tittenhurst Park blog is dedicated to John Lennon's home in Sunningdale, near Ascot, Berkshire between 1969 and 1971. The aim is to gather as much material relating to the estate as possible - obviously with the emphasis on the Lennon-era, but also concerning Tittenhurst Park as it was before and after John Lennon's ownership. In addition, there will be posts about and associated with the Beatles, plus any other rubbish I feel like. The blog is purely meant for the entertainment of anyone (assuming there is actually anyone) who, like me, has an unhealthy interest in one particular Georgian mansion. Those with anything interesting to contribute in the way of links, photos, scans, stories etc. please do contact me: tittenhurstlennon@gmail.com
(Legal: this blog is strictly non-commercial. All material is the property of the photographer/artist/copyright holder concerned. Any such who wishes a picture etc to be removed should contact me and I will do so. Alternatively, if someone is happy to see their photo on here, but would like a credit/link then let me know and I'll be happy to provide one).

Celebrating 40 years anniversary of The Bed-in for Peace: February 2009

From the 21st until the 29th of March a commemoration about the legendary Bed-in for Peace was held in the Hilton Amsterdam with a tripartite photo exhibition 'From Holland with Peace'. Bed-in for Peace Beatle John Lennon and his wife Yoko Ono stayed in the Hilton Amsterdam hotel during their honeymoon in March 1969 and stayed in bed for 7 days in room 902 ( now 702 ). During this so-called ‘Bed-in for Peace’ they spoke about peace with the international press.
