Speke Hall – National Trust site in Liverpool

Speke Hall in Liverpool is a staggeringly impressive Tudor house with gorgeous gardens and woodland and was featured in our Top 5 National Trust sites for hands-on history. The house was originally built to impress visitors – and more than 400 years later it still has the same effect. Described by the National Trust as ‘a perfect oasis from modern life’, Speke Hall is a day out that you won’t forget in a hurry.

This beautiful Tudor house has education at its heart – let your children’s imaginations run wild as they learn about times long gone.

Children will have great fun learning about the Tudors at Speke Hall. Make the history hands- on by taking part in one of the organized events, or join a Victorian costumed tour. Make sure you visit the spectacular Great Hall too. There is also a fully equipped Victorian kitchen and servant’s hall so your children can see ‘behind the scenes’ of Speke Hall. Some of the smaller rooms have some beautiful William Morris wallpapers too – one to keep the grown ups happy!

Outdoors there is an all-weather play area and endless walks around the lovely gardens.
