Spring at Speke Hall
Spring is a special time of year at Speke Hall as the gardens and grounds wake from their winter slumber and burst into colour. There's plenty for local visitors to see and do at the moment, whenever you visit.
This spring, the gardens and grounds are open between Wednesday-Sunday, 10.30am-5pm, for local visitors to enjoy relaxing walks in nature. Home Farm restaurant is also open serving a delicious menu of hot food, sandwiches, cakes and bakes, and hot and cold drinks, with outdoor seating now available. If you'd like to check opening times or view facilities and access information, go to our homepage here.
Spring highlights to look out for
Daffodils on the main drive
Spring arrives with thousands of daffodils blooming along the main drive, staying with us until early April. We planted lots of new bulbs across the gardens last year which are blooming now, including on the orchard.
Blossom in the orchard
Between March-May, the apple and pear trees in our orchard will be displaying beautiful blossom. Celebrate this special spring moment with us by snapping a photo and sharing it using #BlossomWatch.
Every year, usually around mid-April, the semi-ancient Clough woodland at Speke is transformed by a vast sea of bluebells. As soon as they appear, we'll share them on our social media @NTSpekeHall.
Rhododendrons and azaleas in the gardens
Bursts of bright pink, purple and white arrive in the form of rhododendrons and azaleas running along the borders of the North and South Lawns. Take a seat on a bench and spend time admiring this colourful display.
