Things to do at Speke Hall review

Speke Hall is a National Trust property in Speke, Merseyside. It is a wood-framed Tudor manor house. The house is one of the finest surviving examples of its kind and it is Grade I listed.

The hall was originally built in 1530 and has an atmospheric interior that spans many periods with a Great Hall, Priest hole and Oak Parlour. There are other smaller rooms that you can also see during your visit. The fully equipped Victorian kitchen enables visitors to see ‘behind the scenes’.

Outdoors there is a restored garden with different areas. You can also enjoy woodland walks. A 5 minute walk away you will find Home farm. Here there are more things to see and do including a children’s play area and estate walks plus a restaurant.

There is a formal play area and a woodland play area. Plus the Childe of Hale trail which is a sculptured play trail, based on the local legend of John Middleton who was supposedly 9’3″ tall! It is even said that he slept with his feet sticking out of his bedroom window in nearby Hale village. Remember to look out for giant buttons, optical illusions and some larger-than-life vegetable musical instruments that you can play. There is also a hedge maze with 12 gates, 5 bridges, 4 finger mazes, 3 weather vanes and a viewing platform waiting to be discovered.

Covid 19 – Please check the website or social media of an attraction before visiting. Many places may be open differently and some remain closed. Reviews do not mention all of these changes or possible price changes. Most places still require you to pre-book online in advance.
