50 acres of gardens, 1000 acres of landscaped parkland and an elegant 18th century mansion – welcome to Tatton Park, one of the best days out in Cheshire. Highlights include the beautiful Japanese, Italian and rose gardens, historic walled kitchen gardens, arboretum and an adventure playground.
Among the largest and most spectacular gardens in the Northwest, Tatton Park is a place where history springs into life. The gardens today are an almost exact replica of how they existed in Edwardian times. And with so many different areas to explore, there is something for every season: the cherry blossom and bluebells in April and May, the fragrant roses in high summer and the reds and golds of the Japanese Acers in the autumn. Year-round exhibitions in Tatton Park’s mansion reveal its noble past, while the old stables have been converted to a cosy café. Pick up seeds from the Garden Shop and take Tatton Park’s own produce home from the Housekeeper’s Store for dinner. The highlight of the year-round event calendar is the RHS Flower Show Tatton Park in July, when the garden is bursting with colour.
