Make it a day to remember at Speke Hall
Why not turn your 10k twilight walk into a full day of fun by immersing yourself in all there is to do and enjoy at this National Trust location?
Speke Hall is a rare Tudor timber-framed manor house in a most unusual setting on the banks of the River Mersey. Restored and brought back to life in the 19th century, it's a unique and beautiful mixture of Tudor simplicity and Victorian Arts and Crafts aesthetics.
Speke Hall and its surrounding estate provide a real oasis from the hurly burly of modern life. As you come through the gates, relax, take a breath and enjoy all this wonderful place has to offer. The Hall is surrounded by beautiful restored gardens and protected by a collar of woodland.
Speke Hall: a brief history
Speke Hall through the years
Built by the devout Catholic Norris family - keen to impress visitors with the grandeur of their home and in particular the magnificent Great Hall - this beautiful building has witnessed more than 400 years of turbulent history.
From the Tudor period when a secret priest hole was an essential feature, to years of neglect and decay in the 18th and 19th centuries (including a spell when it was used as a cow shed) and then being dragged into the Victorian era of improvement and technology, the Hall has seen it all.
