The walks

Stretch your legs at Speke

The old moat is the perfect place to stroll

Where can you find ancient trees, a Tudor house, a Victorian tunnel, a 1960s Bund and views over an airport and the Welsh hills? Speke, of course!

Follow the links to the left to download PDFs of some of our favourite walks around the estate, or just enjoy exploring while you're here.


Hands-on in the hall

You'll notice some changes when you visit the hall this year. We've removed ropes and introduced lots of fun, new activities. You can now walk all around the Morning Room, go into the Scullery for a better look at our unique tap system and get a better look at the fantastic Victorian kitchenware on display in the pantries.

If you'd prefer something a little more active, you can discover how much effort it took to churn milk into butter in the dairy.  Or perhaps you can see if you've got as good a nose as the Cook - can you identify all the herbs?

Speke snaps

Photography is now welcome inside the hall.

Please don't use flash or tripods but other than that, let your imagination and creativity run riot!

We'd love to see your photos after your visit.
