This expansive manor house is filled with more than tapestries and furniture that are each a work of art, but the stories these rooms and items tell is actually much more thrilling.

Speke Hall was quite the centre of scandal back in the day with priests on the lam hiding out here among the walls in an effort to avoid persecution. Taking advantage of the guided tour of the house you will be made hip to all of the hidden walkways, hideaway holes, and other secrets that these wall whisper.
