Late spring at Speke

A path through the bluebell woods at Speke Hall

Spring has well and truly sprung! The daffodils may be fading on the main drive but the bluebells are bursting into life in the woods. It's a perfect time for a long walk.

We recommend you take a stroll through the Clough woodland behind the hall for the best views and photo opportunities. Late April and early May are when they should be at their best, although it's an inexact science to say when they'll be fully out...please keep up to date with Bluebell Watch on social media!

If you'd like to explore Speke Hall's Tudor heritage and stories, make sure you pay a visit during May. Our Tudor May Day event on 1 & 2 May is a real celebration of Tudor spring. See and meet our historic encampment, try out archery, see some traditional theatre and don't forget to visit the restaurant to try out our award-winning chicken buknade recipe.

Our focus on Life in Tudor England will run throughout May with a whole series of fascinating tours, talks and trails, following up with Tudor family fun activities during half term at the end of the month. Check at Reception on the day to see what's happening while you're here.

The first of our series of summer plays is on 29 & 30 May. Little Red and Grandma by the Bookworm Players is the perfect introduction to outdoor theatre for your little ones - find out more and book your tickets online here.
