Travelling around Speke

Are you thinking about visiting Speke? Perhaps you already live in this great area but need to get around without the hassle of parking or the expense of petrol? At Arriva we know travel and we know Speke, so take a few moments and read through our carefully created guide to attractions and travelling in Speke.


The name derives from the Old English 'Spec', meaning brushwood. Until the 1930s, Speke was a small village with a population of 400; by the end of the 1950s more than 25,000 people were living in the area.  An eyecatching 100ft-high illuminated sculpture - the Mersey Wave -dominates the southern gateway to the city.
