Winter at Speke Hall

Visitors walking on the North Lawn at Speke Hall

The house reopens on 15 February and we've got lots of half-term fun planned, but there's plenty to do at Speke Hall in the meantime. We're open seven days a week for relaxing walks around the estate, hot drinks and an award-winning scone in our restaurant or family adventures in our play areas.

Whether your New Year's resolution is to step up the exercise, do more fun things with the family or spend a few more hours outdoors, Speke Hall is the perfect place.

If you're looking to explore the outdoors and learn something new, have a look at our events page for details of guided walks and tours that are running. Normal grounds admission prices apply (free to NT members) and there's no extra charge for the walks. Just turn up on the day and join in.

If you'd prefer to explore at your own pace then you can pick up our new Winter Wildlife trail leaflet from Reception and take a stroll in the beautiful wintery grounds and gardens to spot some of the flora and fauna that call Speke home. We recommend heading down to the Coastal Reserve for great views of wading birds and a walk up the Bund to see unique glimpses of the Hall through the trees before spring arrives.

As always, our shop is well worth a visit. The shop's products change with the seasons, so pop in to see what's new and what our great local makers have on offer. The winter sale will still be running in early January so it's a great time to pick up bargains including beautiful throws and our exclusive range of scarves.

The restaurant will be open from 10.30am every day serving a delicious range of light bites as well as our award-winning scones. If you've been out walking, it's the perfect place to warm up.

Our conservation team are busy working away on winter cleaning projects and will be showing off their progress when we re-open the house on 15 February 2020.
