Trailblazing Tudors

Begin your summer adventures at Speke Hall with our new outdoor trail featuring six Tudor superstars.

Queen Elizabeth I

Join young Will and Anne Norris in their summer adventure in search of mischief and merriment around their gardens. What sixteenth century superstars will you encounter along the way? Can you solve their cryptic clues and tackle the tasks they set you? Visit us each week to claim your reward sticker. Can you complete the challenge to collect all 6?

Here are the Trailblazing Tudors you can collect each week:

  • Michelangelo (20 - 28 July)

  • Queen Elizabeth I (29 July - 4 August)

  • Galileo (5 - 11 August)

  • Nostradamus (12 - 18 August)

  • William Shakespeare (19 - 25 August)

  • The Norris family (26 August - 1 September)

This colourful outdoor trail will be ready to explore every day throughout the holidays. Don't forget to collect your trail map from Reception and stop by the Shop to collect your stickers.

Illustrator Nicola Guest was commissioned by the National Trust to create all nine Trailblazing Tudor characters. Visit her website to find out more.
