Experience Tatton this summer with an action packed August!

Tatton is perfect for long, lazy summer days, and it’s great for all the family too, especially if you’re looking for activities to keep the children active and entertained!

A firm favourite with families, find out about the recently launched Field to Fork story at the Farm. Old characters have been brought to life with friendly actors and the old mill has been lovingly restored - see and hear the original machinery in action. Enjoy butter and cheese making demonstrations, watch the cows being hand milked and hear fascinating animal talks each day. The rare breed animals continue to be the stars of the show and there’s den building and a woodland play trail to help the children burn off their energy!

The playground is a long standing favourite with families of all age and there’s plenty of tracks to cycle and scoot around to enjoy the true extent of Tatton’s magnificent Parkland, spotting Red and Fallow deer along the way.

Throughout the summer there are exciting events most days with fun, alternative workshops to keep the children entertained during the six week holidays (but be sure to book some of these popular workshops in advance!) And of course most weekends there are amazing large scale shows.
