Let us know here

Tatton Park is one of the UK’s most complete historic estates.  It is home to a Medieval Old Hall, Neo-Classical Mansion, 50 acres of landscaped gardens, a rare-breed farm and 1,000 acres of deer park. Our speciality shops, restaurant, adventure playground, events and educational programmes combine to make Tatton one of the most popular family days out in the North West.

The stunning parkland is home to two herds of deer and is ideal for exploring on foot or by bike. Tatton’s shops offer a wealth of gifts and produce reflecting the character of the estate.

The impressive Neo-Classical Mansion was designed by Samuel and Lewis Wyatt. It provides an appropriate setting for the Egerton family’s commissioned Gillows furniture and lavish collection of art, books and ceramics. The huge kitchens give the visitor a contrasting view of domestic life in the 1880s. A visit includes the permanent Maurice Egerton exhibition and a number of temporary exhibitions throughout the year.

Group Visits

Tatton Park welcomes groups of all ages and interests (minimum group size is 15 people to qualify for group rates). Whether you have a full day or a half-day to spend at our estate, we can organise an itinerary to make the most of your time here.

To qualify for group discounted rates and to benefit from our Meet and Greet service then your visit must be pre-booked (ideally, a week in advance of your visit date). We recommend allowing four or more hours if you are visiting all of our attractions, or three hours if you are just visiting the Mansion and Gardens, which still leaves time for refreshments and time to browse in our speciality shops.

The 1,000 acres of parkland are home to two herds of deer which you should be able to glimpse from your coach on arrival. There are four attractions to choose from – the Mansion, Gardens, Farm and Old Hall and a choice of speciality shops to enjoy browsing in. We also offer group tours.

General Mansion Tour – explores the rich history of the mansion and its important collections, reflecting the wealth and status of the Egerton family.

Hidden Treasures Tour – unveil the secrets behind treasured artefacts usually hidden from public view.

Upstairs/Downstairs Tour – learn about life ‘below stairs’ with one of our entertaining Edwardian servants on a dramatic tour of the opulent state rooms and servants’ quarters.

Japanese Garden Tour – learn about the team of Japanese horticulturists who landscaped the area more than 100 years ago.
