Amazing and crazy place. Such a varied history for this place. Ably bought to life by the very knowledgeable national trust volunteers. I loved the Tudor and Victorian tours. The guides pointed out so much history and hidden details. A wonderful day out with plenty of activities during school holidays. Also a good walk round the estate available with amazing views across the disused taxiway from speke airport to the new John Lennon airport. You feel like the planes are taking off almost on top of your head!
Amazing historical building run by the National Trust. We visited the house and found it very interesting. Ran out of time to visit the grounds and garden's but would love a return visit. Plenty here for all ages, a play area for children, a maze in the grounds and adventure trail. Plus longer walks for the more energetic.
A must see and visit place to go for all the family. Set in acres of gardens, woodlands with adventure playground, mazes. Fantastic for walkers and because it's close to the airport runway there are amazing views to watch planes taking off and landing. Spacious cafe inside and out. A quaint shop. I usually visit once or twice a month. Love the place.
Walked the gardens and all the paths. Particularly enjoyed Coastal Reserve. Did not visit house. Very busy considering how early in the year. Great to see lots of children running around. Return visit during the week to do house.
I visited Speke Hall with my husband and daughter. We booked onto the Victorian life tour of the house before it was open to the public. The tour was very informative and interesting. My daughter also enjoyed the outdoor playground and I went back into the house to see more including the Tudor aspects, such as the priest hole, and a video documenting the painstaking restoration of a chaise longue. We had lunch in the restaurant - they had a lovely looking menu but unfortunately by the time we got there, approximately 1.30, alot of the hot food was sold out. Will definitely be back and next time we will go earlier to the restaurant.
Love this place, as do the kids. Bought a National Trust annual family pass as we go camping a lot, but this is literally 5 minutes away and great for the kids for a few hours. Always different trails on for them to follow, a play area, a maze, and various different walks so every visit is different. There is also a cafe there that is quite reasonably priced. The Hall itself is also quite spectacular and well worth a walk around. A true hidden gem!
Came here for Christmas 2017. Lovely band playing and had some really nice food outside to eat plus tea and coffee. Father Christmas was also There and the staff are lovely. Well worth it
Lovely gardens, walk along river. Enjoyed house, staff helpful and knowledgeable. Food great in cafe. Smashing children's playground. Very family orientated. Lots of special events on. Great time.
Lots of things to see and do for adults and kids. There's a maze and kids play area, kids trail around the house and grounds to keep them busy. Nice walks in the grounds for humans and dogs but dogs are not allowed in all areas! A fantastic place to watch the planes coming in to Liverpool airport....kids loved that!
Really helpful and friendly staff. We went with preschoolers. Fab giant walk for the little ones. T he forest area had lots of natural climbing things for them to play on. Could have spent all day. Had a lovely walk to see the blue bells too. Also a park. The maze was closed this time as they were doing grounds work.
Speke Hall is an excellent location. The house and history is amazing. Very much worth multiple visits. The restaurant/cafe serves really nice food. The gardens are really nice, including a living maze. If you like walking, the path along the river is really nice. Being right next to Liverpool Airport, you get great views of aircraft as a mini bonus. The staff at Speke are really friendly and in the house, are really knowledgeable and answer most questions very well. The National Trust have many events during the year. These are good times to visit, even though it can be very busy at these times.
This is one of the great half-timbered houses of a North-Western English architectural tradition. It has a lot of original wood and glass as well as the extensive Victorian work that you'd expect in a major house. The gardens are charming, there's a decent NT tearoom and some nice estate walks, all in easy distance of Liverpool centre.
Always a delight visiting Speke Hall, beautiful house , gardens, woods and walks. Plenty of activities for people and children including themed talks and plays and far more. All volunteer staff enthusiastic about their jobs. And swallows nest there each year too - so that's how great it is!!
This is a must visit attraction when in the Liverpool area. Set near the airport the house is exceptionally well presented and in simple yet pleasing grounds. The house is fine and many rooms are open to view. Unlike many other historic houses this one feels comfortable to be in and doesn't feel as if had fallen on hard times and struggled before being taken on by the National Trust. This feels as if you could move in today if you had the money. The grand hall is fairly small but sympathetically sized for the house and the central courtyard is a surprise. Parking is ample, the restaurant fairly small but pleasant and there are lovely walks around the estate as well as a chance of plane spotting from time to time.
This is a relaxing and peaceful oasis and when there you would not think it was surrounded by busy industry and the city of Liverpool. All staff are friendly and very informative. Nice forest area for children to play and on the coastal path you can watch planes take off and land at the airport. Well worth a visit. BRENDAN from Warrington.
A wonderful house, lovely walks and a good cafe/restaurant. Stable tea room not open. Friendly and helpful staff. Would have liked to walk later in the grounds on such a sunny summers evening but signs all said closed at 5pm
