it was a most enjoyable visit having plenty of grass for the boys to let off steam. they loved the maze and the play area the toilets are nice and clean and are kept clean thru out the day. there is food available but we took a picnic and used one of the picnic tables.

A beautifully restored home. The visit was made all the more enjoyable by the volunteers who were a mine of information. If you've got the time then call in to Dobbies garden centre not far from the entrance to Speke Hall - the butchers and bakers have some really great quality produce for sale.

The contrast of Tudor v Victorian is awesome. Not a big house by any means but each room is a fantastic treasure trove. Original Morris wallpaper, Tudor masonry and the most delightful ladies Victorian room ever.
The guides were brilliant with insight and enthusiasm. It was fabulous.

The wet nelly in the tea room was totally scrummy too!

The hall itself is set amidst fantastic garden and woodland setting, and the house which resides in the middle of it all is fantastic in its own right. Inside the atmosphere is unique, the sights, smells and sounds are great. The food in the restaurant is good as well.

This house is clearly not haunted as people suggest, its a very cosy house indeed with a light and airy atmosphere. Some people claim paranormal causes dizziness and sickness feeling... There is however a more logical explanation for this, the floors are often slanting, which may make some people feel off- balance or sick, but not everyone. Personally I think the 'wonkiness' of the building adds more character to it.

All in all a great day.. Only gripe is the ticket office was difficult to find as we went by foot

This is a wonderfully evocative place, in which you can feel the history. I bought a guidebook to inform my tour. A lot of the history of the place seems uncertain, but the staff in the rooms were very helpful. The gardens are lovely. Well worth a visit. you even forget about the aircraft taking off next door!
