Get closer to nature

Styal estate is the perfect place to visit if you're a nature enthusiast.

The woodlands of Styal are a secluded haven for wildlife and nature, just a couple of miles away from Manchester Airport.

Our rangers strive to maintain the estate as an environment that supports a rich diversity of life, from bats to bluebells and more.
