Winter at Speke Hall

Speke Hall in the snow

We're closed for a couple of months over winter but that doesn't mean that there's nothing to do here at Speke Hall!

The Stable Tea Room is open at weekends throughout the winter so if you're out and about, pop in. Our second hand bookshop is taking up temporary residence in the stables over the winter months, so feel free to pick up a great book and enjoy it with a warming brew or a liqueur coffee. Soup, sandwiches, a great range of cakes and our famous scones will be on offer too.

We've put together walking trails for different routes around the estate - some short, some long - and they can be downloaded in advance of your visit or picked up from the stables. We recommend the Coastal Reserve route for great views of winter wading birds and the Full Estate walk offers unique glimpses of the Hall through the trees from the Bund at this time of year. You won't be able to see it when the leaves come back in spring!

The house team will be busy working away on winter conservation projects and will be showing off their progress with our Waking up the House event when we reopen in February half term. Access to the hall before is for a select (and brave!) few visitors who book tickets onto our exclusive ghost tours. Dates in January and February will be made available shortly. Do you dare buy them?...
