Visiting Speke Hall: what you need to know
You no longer need to book your visit to Speke Hall. We're following government guidelines and adapting to changes in how we open, so your visit may be a little different than you're used to. Please have a read through the information below so that you can enjoy your visit to Speke Hall to the fullest.
Tickets and entry
You no longer have to pre-book to visit Speke Hall. Entry is free for National Trust members and all under 5s. Admission fees apply to non-members. You will need a ticket to visit the gardens, grounds, house, restaurant and play areas. Please note we do not offer a grounds-only ticket.
When is best to visit?
We're open every day, 10.30am-5pm, but we're quieter on weekdays and afternoons. If you would like to visit the house (open Wednesday-Sunday), we'd recommend heading over from 2pm when any queues should be shorter.
Parking and arrival
When you arrive, you’ll be greeted by a member of staff. If you're a National Trust member, please have your membership card to hand. Last entry is at 4pm, and you’re welcome to explore Speke Hall's gardens and grounds until we close at 5pm.
You’ll find sinks for hand washing in the toilets at Home Farm, and will find hand sanitiser at Visitor Reception and Home Farm restaurant, as well as by our play areas.
Face coverings are recommend in enclosed, crowded areas. If you'd rather not wear a face covering, please continue to keep a respectful distance from others, particularly our volunteers in the house.
If you’re showing any of the symptoms of coronavirus, or if you've been in contact with anyone that has the virus in the last 10 days, please don’t visit.
