Group visits to Speke Hall

A group of visitors being led by a tour guide in a Tudor costume across the South Lawn, surrounded by trees with the black and white Stable Tea Room in the distance.

Speke Hall makes an ideal stopping point when travelling into or out of Liverpool. We're situated eight miles out of the city centre and are close to excellent motorway links - perfect if you want to round off your day in Liverpool with a look around this iconic Tudor house.

Please note we are currently accepting groups of under 30 people on weekdays only (June 2021).

Speke Hall dates from the 1530s and has a fine Tudor Great Hall and stunning Jacobean plasterwork features. More recent additions include the fully equipped Victorian kitchen and servants' hall.

To discuss bringing a group to visit Speke Hall and to book a visit, please contact Speke Hall by email. If you have a specific enquiry and would like to speak to a member of our team over the phone, you can call us on 0151 427 7231.

Tours

We don't offer guided tours of the Hall as standard for groups due to the size of some of the rooms. If you'd like to book a special introductory tour of the exterior of the building, focusing on the Tudor history, then let us know and we'll do our best to arrange this.

Entry to the hall

Due to current coronavirus restrictions, arrangements for visiting the house are a bit different to how we've done things in the past. You can find more information about this here.

We only accept groups into the hall from 12.30pm onwards when the house is open. Due to size restrictions in the rooms we're unable to offer specific guided tours of the interior for your group but we have excellent Room Guides in every room and they'll be more than happy to talk to you about the hall.

Prices

Please contact us for prices. National Trust members must show their cards to gain free entry. Payment can be made by cash, cheque, card or via invoice.

Eating at Speke

The Restaurant currently has limited indoor seating and outdoor seating.

On busier days it may be necessary for your party to split into smaller groups to enter the Restaurant. Unfortunately no advance bookings can be taken, but if you let us know if you intend taking lunch we can plan for your visit and arrange.

Hot lunches are served between 12pm and 2pm and lighter meals are available all day. Our range includes a variety of sandwiches, soup, and home-made cakes.
