If you fancy some fresh air, look no further than Tatton Park, spread over 1,000 acres of lush grounds. Stroll through the 50 acres of award winning gardens or wander up to the 19th century mansion that is the focal point of this glorious haven. Herds of red and fallow deer have called the park home for decades, so why not bring a picnic and watch these majestic animals whilst you dine alfresco. If you’re visiting with children, make sure you call in at the onsite farm, where you can let your little ones feed the goats and hens or pet the pigs and donkeys. There’s also a children’s adventure playground complete with a den-building zone, storytelling and a maize maze open from July to October. The Park also has a busy calendar of events throughout the year, so be sure to check out what’s on during your visit. Highlights include Tatton Park Antiques and Fine Art Fair and Unlocking the Secrets of the Japanese Garden.
Enjoy your stay in this delightful city, combining urban and rural life!
