You could easily spend much of your day here! ***Old hall*** The Old Hall is a listed building, which was originally the manor house of the estate before Tatton Hall was built. We were informed that it was originally timber framed but was ... more

Last weekend, I headed off to Tatton Country Park along with my sister, brother in law and niece. We had been in Manchester for a family event and we headed off to Tatton on the way home on Sunday. Tatton Country Park is a historic estate in Cheshire comprising a stately home, the old hall, gardens and a farm. It is owned by the national trust. If you have national trust membership, it makes the day out much more reasonable. ***Getting there*** Tatton Country Park is very easy to find. My dad told me that it would be easy to find; however, I had my map close at hand, just in case! However, if you are approaching Tatton from the M6, it really is easy to ... Read the complete review

Over the Summer holidays I was looking for days out for the children and decided to invest in an annual pass for the National Trust. One of the nearerst 'attractions' was Tatton Park, which comprises of a Hall, Gardens, Play Area and Farm. Upon arriving in the car, I was charged £5 for parking the car. Unlike many National Trust properties, it appears that the local council actually own the parking area, a bit bizarre. After paying we then parked up in the parking area, which is very close to the hall and block. The first place we went to visit was the hall. It is a very old building, which I guess dates to the Georgian period. The family ... Read the complete review

I lived in Manchester for 11 years but I'd never visited Tatton Park. Considering that it's one of the area's most famous and well-loved attractions this was a serious omission on my part. I think I possibly had it confused with Lyme Park and for some reason I'd always assumed that it must cost an arm and a leg to visit. I'd also never entirely worked out where it was. It took a visit to a totally different country to spur us into action to go and visit. In June I dragged my husband over to Bremen, Germany for the weekend. I go frequently for work but he'd never seen the city. Whilst sitting in Bremen's excellent Ubersee Museum, staring at a reconstructed ... Read the complete review

Tatton park is a place we visited on our way home from our holiday in Wales this September. We decided to use this as a half way stopping place to break up our journey have something to eat and stretch our legs. As we were only there for a couple of hours we were only able to do a small amount of the things on offer at Tatton Park. For the purpose of this review I will only focus on those bits which are the gardens, adventure playground café and toilet facilities. If you want to read about the other areas in more detail I suggest you look at the website which is www.nationaltrust.org.uk/main/w-tattonpark What is it and what's ... Read the complete review

Tatton Park is an example of a country house and estate dating from 1791. It is situated near to Knutsford in Cheshire and was the former seat of the Egerton family. The National Trust now own the park, but it is financed, administered and maintained by Cheshire County Council. The house is a neo-classical type building that was designed by Samuel Wyatt. Work began on the construction in 1791 but the original plans were scaled down due to cost. His nephew, Lewis Wyatt eventually completed it around 1810. As well as the main house, generally referred to as Tatton Mansion there is also another historic house on the estate known as the Tudor Old Hall. ... Read the complete review
