Celebrate spring in the Parkland, Gardens and Farm by getting outdoors to explore the wonders of nature. From beds of vibrant tulips to carpets of purple hues, our Gardens and Parkland are finally waking up after the winter sleep and the Farm is getting ready to welome new arrivals!
Pick up our free seasonal Scavenger Hunt from the Welcome Building and explore the sites and sounds of the picturesque Parkland this spring.
We are planning to re-open our Gardens in line with government guidelines from 29 March (tickets coming soon). Enjoy the vibrant displays of blossoms, a brand new family trail and more!
The Secret Path Trail with Percy the Park Keeper 2 April - 13 June
Enjoy a delightful family trail in Tatton Park’s spring gardens, inspired by Nick Butterworth’s book, ‘The Secret Path’. Follow winding pathways to help Percy take care of nature and wildlife. Stop off for a selfie or two at Percy’s potting shed where you can enjoy the sights and scents of spring before heading off to finally track down his furry animal friends. Collect your sticker reward at the end! Details and tickets here.
Look out for the peaceful Forest Bathing sites introducing visitors to the ancient Japanese practice 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.
