We visited Speke over the weekend and have never met such unfriendly staff. I don't normally complain but I simply can't tolerate rudeness and don't appreciate being tutted at for complaining of a lack of toilet paper in the toilets! To be fair to the ladies and gents working in the house, they were very friendly and welcoming, the rest... More

I visited Speke Hall this afternoon with my family 8 adults and 5 kids. We started with a trip round the Hall where the kids completed Metal Mickeys Mysteries where the staff went out there way to help and involve the children. Then we went to the Home Farm Restaurant and had lunch Potato and Leek Soup, Scouse, Pan Haggarty,... More

Having just returned home from my third visit to Speke Hall since the opening day 2015 (National Trust member) with my granddaughters on a visit from Cumbria. The house and formal gardens as always wonderful. However, most of the paid staff especially in tea rooms and restaurant were very sullen (not a good image for the Trust). The courtyard on... More

Speke Hall is a great day out for the family. Plenty to do in the holidays as they put on activities (check their website for details). Last year my children loved the treasure hunt, orienteering, the Alice in Wonderland themed event (played crochet with the Queen of Hearts!!) archery and playing Victorian games in the gardens of the Hall. They... More

Had a walk around the extensive grounds that had planned walking routes, 2 play areas for the children, picnic areas and a small maze. Food in restaurant/cafe was very good. Had a look around the house, staff were very friendly and... More

We visited on the first day of the "new season". The lady on reception was very friendly and pointed us in the right direction for the house and cafe etc. We took a guided tour that was very informative and the people in the house were very friendly and didn't mind answering lots of questions from our children! We took... More

Visited on Friday in 1/2 term and whilst I appreciate the house has only just opened for the season, the outer grounds were a tad shabby with litter and there was far too much furniture in the house under covers. On both counts I'm afraid we couldn't help but find Speke Hall wanting in comparison to another NT property we... More
