Why should I visit Speke Hall Garden & Estate in Merseyside?

Speke Hall and its garden is a green oasis with a Tudor aged house at its heart, surrounded by beautiful scenery, woodland and glorious views over the River Mersey!

Speke Hall is a Tudor timber-framed manor house set on the banks of the River Mersey. Restored in the 19th century, it is a unique mixture of Tudor simplicity and Victorian aesthetics.

Built by the dedicated Catholic Norris family, keen to impress visitors with the grandness of their home, Speke Hall embodies over 400 years of turbulent history. Its secret priest hole reflects Catholic persecution during the Tudor period, whilst much of the Hall’s upkeep was invested in first by the Norris family’s and later by the Watt family’s, longstanding involvement in transatlantic slavery.

The Hall experienced many years of neglect and decay, including a spell of time in which it was used as a cow shed! Now, finally pulled into the victorian era of improvement and technology, the Hall was resuscitated with a Gothic revival style.

In present times, Speke Hall and its surrounding estate provide a place to reflect on past and present, and about how the legacies of its history remain relevant today!

  • Hall is open on Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 12.30 pm to 4 pm
  • Gardens are open daily from 10.30 am to 4 pm, and Restaurant is open daily from 10.30 am to 3.30 pm
