Speke Hall, Liverpool
(4.6/5 based on 900+ reviews on the web)
Speke Hall stands as one of the finest examples of a wood-framed wattle-and-daub Tudor manor house. Start your visit with a walk around the manor to admire its architecture from various angles. Head inside to view the well-appointed interior, which showcases more Arts and Crafts furnishings than Tudor ones since the home's 19th-century restoration. Back outside, navigate the Victorian hedgerow maze and admire the colorful gardens. If you're more interested in the manor from the outside, you can purchase a ticket for the gardens and grounds only for a reduced price. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Liverpool holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Speke Hall and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • This Elizabethan Manor House has been lovingly cared for and preserved by the National Trust. Set in large grounds next to Liverpool's Speke (John Lennon) Airport with commanding views of the Mersey Estuary, coastal and woodland walks, gardens (formerly laid out) stable tea rooms, Children's playground, woodland adventure areas (with zip line), a maze with a multiple of combinations, guided tours and a working Victorian Arkroyd engine there is a wealth of attraction and charm. Be prepared to spend a few hours, if you have older kids it is safe to leave them mucking about in the forest, mazes and play areas while you enjoy the house and gardens. The tearooms are modern and on busy days they open a second tearoom and ice-cream hut to cater for demand. The staff, many of whom are volunteers, are friendly and knowledgable. Don't' forget to take younger children on the storybook trail through the woods with a poem about a giant and hidden surprises in the forest.
  • This is going to be a very short review because I don't think there's much else to say beyond its spectacular. The staff were wonderful and friendly and clearly enjoyed telling everyone about speke hall. The prices are reasonable, and there is plenty to see and learn about. They also have a coastal walk which goes right by the airport runway Would definitely visit again!
  • Very interesting and informative. There are lots of activities for children and adults including some very pleasant walks and trails, a well equipped play area and even a maze. The house itself is beautiful and the staff/volunteers are very friendly and well informed. I would recommend bringing your own food and drinks because the cafe is very expensive. I'd say the entry fee is also a bit high but we have a national trust membership which allows us free entry and I would recommend looking into this because of the many other benefits.
  • Spent a nice sunny afternoon here. High standard as expected from a National Trust property. Volunteers very helpful nice people. Gardens of a very high standard. Liked the small walled vegetable garden. Good Cafe/restaurant, average prices. Plenty of seating inside and out. Recommend for half a days pleasure. Visited June 2016
  • An historical site which is Part of the National Trust. Spent the better part of the day with my family walking around the grounds and visiting the main attraction; the house. I remember visiting here when I was knee high to a grass hopper and being particularly interested in the eavesdrop (a small open hole under the eaves of the house); see if you can spot it whilst you're there!
