A message for our visitors…

Tatton’s Parkland remains open under national lockdown regulations for local outdoor exercise from 6 January 2021

For the latest Government Guidance related to the national lockdown see

Following the latest Government national lockdown announcement, Tatton Park’s public outdoor places, including the Parkland and Playground, can safely remain open for local outdoor exercise. Government regulations allow exercise outdoors in a public outdoor space, but this should be limited to once per day and you should not travel outside the local area where you live. 

You can continue to exercise alone, or in a public outdoor place with your household, support bubble, childcare bubble, or with one other person from another household if you maintain social distancing. You should follow the guidance on meeting others safely. 

During the national lockdown, the Park, Play area, Stableyard toilets, Stables take-away and Housekeeper’s store will be open. However, the Gardens, Farm, Mansion, Gardener’s Cottage Tea Room and Gift Shop will be closed until further notice. Please be advised that you should not meet socially or picnic whilst leaving home to exercise

Existing bookings

If you have already booked a future visit to our Gardens, these will be cancelled without prejudice due to the Government restrictions and you will receive a full refund within 28 days of your expected visit date.  Any related tickets purchased in the same transaction, e.g. vehicle park entry, will also be refunded and will therefore be null and void for the lockdown period. If you have already booked for Parkland vehicle entry and this would mean travelling outside your local area, you can use your pre-paid Vehicle Park entry tickets at any time over the next 12 months, from the time of booking. Should you wish however to receive a refund against this booking please contact us at  quoting your valid booking reference.
