“A GREAT HOUSE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

A Must if you are in the Chester- Liverpool Area, to go to see. National Trust Property, very well looked after, lots to see, lived in up to 1929, so lots of furniture to see. Wonderful Old Clocks to admire if you like them as much as I do. Guides who are volunteers in the main very knowledgeable, who are a credit to The National Trust.
A bit of a walk, if you are not to good on the old feet, but have wheel-chairs, that they will let you borrow, and there is a golf cart, and a jolly driver, jokes and all !!, who will run you back and forth.
Overall a good visit try it. !!!

“Tudor in all it's splendour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

This is a really old building. There is a hidey hole where the priests used to hide and in the courtyard are two magnificent trees(not sure if they are oak) that are called Adam and Eve.

“Who would think...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

Who would think that Speke Hall even existed when you consider it is within a mile of the River Mersey, John Lennon Airport and shopping complex. It is a very educational and interesting place to visit. The gardens are amazing. Overall it is quite atmospheric in a good way.

“Interesting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

A very interesting visit to a family house, rather than a stately home. Beautiful. some staff in costume.
