The grounds and gardens of Speke Hall are now open 362 days a year so that gives you lots more opportunities to come and explore the outdoors. With a hedge maze, two play areas, the fantastic Childe of Hale play trail and acres of woodland and gardens to explore, it's the perfect place to let off some steam over the winter.

Pop on your wellies, pick up a Wildlife and Wellies activity booklet and start exploring the outdoors. The booklet will guide you around the grounds and help you spot wellies, explore the woods and discover nature over the winter months. It's ideal for little legs!

Once you've finished, why not visit the restaurant for a warming hot chocolate or one of our award-winning scones? Don't forget to visit reception to get the oak leaf stamp of achievement for your booklet.

The activity booklet can be used again and again over the winter as things change with the seasons so please do come back and discover what's changed in the grounds and gardens. If you're a National Trust member, this is a great way to make best use of your membership at a time of year when you might not usually be visiting!
