An historical estate with a neo-classical mansion, 50 acres of landscaped gardens, 1000 acres of deer park, a rare breed farm and medieval Old Hall.
For nearly 400 years the estate was the property of the Egerton family until it was bequeathed to the National Trust in 1958. It is now financed and maintained by Cheshire East Council. This is one of the most complete historic estates open to visitors. The early 19th-century mansion sits amid a landscaped deer park and is opulently decorated, providing a fine setting for the Egerton family's extensive collections. The theme of Victorian grandeur extends into the garden with its glasshouses, formal gardens, Italian and Japanese gardens.
There is so much to see and do and with over 100 events each year, it makes for one of the most popular family days out in the North West. You can explore the Old Hall which was once the heart of the estate, often referred to as Tatton's 'hidden gem'. Enjoy speciality shops, restaurant and tea room, and take a visit to Home Farm where time has ‘stood still’ since the 1930s and traditional breeds are still resident. Children can explore the adventure play area, woodland play trail and den building zone.
