Whatever the time of year there is no shortage of adventure at Speke Hall Garden and Estate. Have you ever played the carrots? Scaled the roof of a Tudor building? Made your own woodland den? The hedge maze, play area, the Childe of Hale trail and the woodland trail are all free to enjoy once you’re on site. There really is so much to explore at Speke Hall Estate, you’ll find yourself coming back for more.

The iconic black and white Speke Hall has witnessed centuries of turbulent history. Surrounded by tranquil gardens and semi-ancient woodland, it’s a slice of the past in urban South Liverpool. Drive through the gates and leave the 21st century behind.

Speke Hall dates from the 1530s and has a fine Tudor Great Hall and stunning Jacobean plasterwork features. More recent additions include the fully equipped Victorian kitchen and servants’ hall. Featuring stunning original William Morris wallpapers and original fireplaces, Speke Hall is a Tudor house with a Victorian personality. Set to the backdrop of the historic black and white exterior, further Tudor features include a priest hole and an eavesdropper.

The Hall also has its own compact but beautiful gardens, including the newly restored Secret Garden and the Kitchen Garden where you can take home produce on Wednesdays and Fridays.

Speke Hall makes an ideal stopping point when travelling into or out of Liverpool. Perfectly situated eight miles out of the Liverpool city centre, Speke Hall Gardens and Estate is close to excellent motorway links – perfect if you want to round off the hustle and bustle of a day in Liverpool with a look around this breathtaking Tudor estate.
