Join us for a Great British Walk this autumn

 

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 five of our favourite walks around the estate, or just enjoy exploring while you're here. If you fancy joining in with our Autumn Colours or Following in Miss Watt's Footsteps guided walks during September and October, please see our events page for details of dates, times and how to book.

The Autumn Colours downloadable walk has been specially designed to take in the most colourful sights around Speke Hall at this vibrant time of year. If you take your camera with you, please share your best snaps using the hashtag #GBWalk

Hands-on in the hall

Practise your copperplate

Practise your copperplate

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 like to try a spot of letter writing, take a leaf out of Adelaide Watt's book and sit down in the Morning Room to have a go. 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.
