Speke Hall, Liverpool
Categories: Historic Sites, Tourist Spots
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 is ok for a half days outing. Surprisingly close to Liverpool airport that you can smell the aviation fuel at times even! You enter via an industrial estate at the end of the road. It's a nice ho... read more »

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
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.
Lovely National Trust property. We had a lovely walk along the coast and enjoyed the guided tour and hall. Well worth a visit.
Fantastic hall & gardens. Excellent cafe. Gorgeous carpets of bluebells in woodland walks. Loads of activities for kids ... maze, archery, ping pong, aeroplane spotting & playground. Lots of lawns for picnics. Great sea breezes for hayfever sufferers.
Very nice national trust property. It has everything: exceptional gardens, a long and entertaining history, tours, and it's not your ordinary manor (if there is such a thing). There is also a really nice view over Liverpool John Lennon airport for all the plane spotters out there (not to boast or anything, but I've seen a C-130 Hercules land there). A great place for a picnic, on a sunny day.
