Gallery in the Gardens
Explore our Gallery in the Gardens presented by the Mid Cheshire Community Rail Partnership and local artist Nicky Thompson.
Pick up a wildlife brochure and trail sheet (included with your entry ticket) and fully immerse yourself in the art trail with activities and information on wildlife found in Cheshire.
Explore 50 acres of Gardens and discover Cheshire’s Wonderful Wildlife through 1930's inspired art. Tatton’s Gardens and Parkland provide a natural habitat for a variety of wildlife, many of which you’ll learn on about on the art trail. Use the map to discover all twelve illustrations including the red deer, barn owl and fox. Book your Garden visit here.
Tatton Park’s natural landscape and award winning Gardens will no doubt provide the perfect backdrop for Nick’s wonderful artwork. We can’t wait to see how iconic parts of Tatton’s 50 acres of gardens, frame the colourful wildlife illustrations and create an inspiring Garden trail for visitors of all ages to experience this Autumn. We are equally as thrilled that one of the artworks pays homage to Tatton’s Red Deer.
Wonderful Wildlife art competition for kids
Visit the Gallery in the Gardens and use the back of your trail sheet to draw or paint your favourite wild animal for a chance to win a fabulous art set!
The competition is open to all children up to the age of 16. Selected entrants will be featured on our social media and at Tatton Park. Click here for details of how to submit your entries.
A new addition to Tatton Park’s Garden is Forest Bathing. Several sites have been set up, introducing visitors to the Japanese art of spending time beneath trees to boost health and happiness. Forest Bathing is the art of connecting with nature through your senses. Listen to bird song; look at the leaves; smell the pine or soil; touch the grass; feel the air. Breath nature in deeply and find calmness and wellbeing.
The Parkland bursts with wildlife and colour in Autumn. You might be able to hear the deer bellowing and you may even get to see the male deer displaying their strength by locking antlers with each other as part of the rut. While this is fascinating to see, deer are wild animals and during the rut their behaviour changes - be sure to keep your distance, as they can act aggressively when disturbed.
