Tatton Park :: Shared Description

Tatton Park is a historic estate in Cheshire, to the north of the town of Knutsford. It contains a mansion (Tatton Hall), a manor house dating from medieval times (Tatton Old Hall), gardens, a farm and a deer park of 2,000 acres. For nearly 400 years the estate was the property of the Egerton family until it was bequeathed to the National Trust in 1958.

One of the most complete historic estates open to visitors, it is now a popular visitor attraction which hosts over 100 local and national events annually include the annual Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Show, car shows, concerts, courses and craft and antique fairs.

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.
