Fascinating house with an interesting history of persecution of Catholic families - our kids 7 - 11 were intrigued by the priest holes - that made this place a bit different from the average NT places. They played billboards, did a bit of archery, conquered the big climbing frames by the entrance and generally charged around wearing themselves out in... More

If you are in the Liverpool area you cannot go wrong visiting Speke Hall. We had a great time looking round this fabulous building. It makes your appreciate how lucky we are to have these historic buildings to go and see.

Although I was born in Liverpool and lived there for 20 years, I'd never been to Speke Hall before. So on our return from seeing the Giants in the city we stopped at Speke Hall on the way home. We took the Victorian Tour through the house which was well worth doing to get some basic information on the history,... More

A brilliant day, wandering the house and grounds of this Tudor manor, drinking in the atmosphere, and marvelling at the tree in the courtyard, the 'eavesdropping' space and the priesthole. Not to mention the haunted babies' crib that rocks. We even opted into an informative tour by a costumed guide, and then just enjoyed walking the perimeter of the grounds,... More

This is a really nice day out. We spent the day here as a couple, but plan to return with grandchildren. There are lovely gardens, and a really interesting and atmospheric house to explore. Car park is good, and the buggy for those with walking restrictions is really helpful. Would recommend anyone to visit here.

What a lovely place this is! The gardens were especially nice, with baby swifts putting on a fantastic hours entertainment. Only thing we didnt like was the shore walk which was not the best walk at all, with people telling us to turn back as it was rubbish. The house, staff and gardens were all very nice indeed and we...

This is a very picturesque National Trust property, on the edge of Liverpool, and is well worth a visit. The house is lovely to look at, but the rooms are quite small, and to be honest once you've seen inside one of these houses, they tend to be a bit samey. The gardens are lovely, without being spectacular. There is... More

I went to Speke Hall last Sunday with my wife and grandchildren. I hadn't been there for a lot of years, and was pleasantly surprised when we arrived. The car parking is very good and not very far from the entrance. The price to get in was £22.50 for a family of four, and there is an electric bus for... More

Speke Hall is a Tudor timber framed house well worth a visit. The house is interesting and the food in the restaurant was the best we have had at a National Trust. It is free to National Trust members like ourselves. The gardens and short walks around the Estate are lovely.... we even spotted a fox. Good facilities for the... More
