The Old Hall at Tatton Park

If Tatton Park is a jewel in the crown of Cheshire, then the medieval Old Hall is its hidden gem.

Standing within its own grounds in a quiet wooded area of the park, the medieval Old Hall has a special atmosphere. A site of historical and archaeological importance within the Northwest of England, it takes visitors on an evocative journey through its 500 year history as a dwelling place - from medieval manor house to Victorian Gamekeepers cottage.

New for 2024 Old Hall open days

Standing in its own grounds, within the parkland beside the site of the long disappeared medieval Tatton village, the Old Hall is Tatton’s oldest surviving building. Originally built by the powerful Stanley family the Hall’s Tudor heyday gave way to a slower pace of life as it was superseded by the new 18th Century Mansion. Come and explore the rooms and soak up the atmosphere of this hidden away slice of history.

Old Hall is the perfect spot to bring along a family picnic and gentle outdoor games, with space for kids to run around outside. You can grab a family activity pack from reception and discover the flora and fauna of this unique area within the parkland.
