Tatton Park's Parkland

Italian Garden and Parkland - Joe WainwrightTatton Park's 2,000 acres of landscaped deer park, woodland, meres and farmland make up the Tatton estate of which 1,000 acres are open to the public for exploring by bike, on foot or on horseback. The appearance of the parkland today owes much to the ideas of the landscape architect Humphrey Repton (1752-1818) though there is evidence of habitation here during the Stone Age.

A deer park since 1290, Tatton's parkland is now home to herds of Red and Fallow deer which roam freely in the wide open spaces. Rare breed St Kilda and Soay sheep have also been a feature here since 1887 and the 1930s respectively, and every season brings its own rich variety of birds and wildlife.
