Tatton Park - the perfect family day out
Tatton Park's Parkland
There are over 1,000 acres of parkland to explore which are home to herds of beautiful red and fallow deer. Try one of Tatton Park's recommended walking routes, explore some of Tatton's parkland by bike (Bicycle hire is available at certain times of the year), and bring a picnic . Our seasonal scavenger hunt or forager trail sheets are a great way for children to explore the park and nature spot. Nature Trail booklets are also on sale here and at Tatton Park entrance gates for a small charge, full of colour photographs of wildlife to look out for. Young bird watchers can observe from Tatton Park's bird hide.
Tatton Park's Farm – A great place to visit whatever the weather.Meet many of Tatton's farmyard animals including pigs, donkeys, horses, cows, goats and poultry, most are indoors. Visitors to the Farm can enjoy some fantastic activities including a woodland play trail, and den building area. Events take place regularly at Tatton's Farm throughout the year.
The Gardens at Tatton Park are great for kids too. Tatton’s maze is brilliant fun and during the year the Gardens put on a number of family events including Apple Day in October and our famous Scarecrow Festival in February.
