Tatton is perfect for long, lazy summer days, and it’s great for all the family

entertained
!
In the Gardens play a game of hide and seek with the children or simply relax
and take in the perfumed air within the Italian Gardens. Fin
d out more about
the produce
grow
n
in the Gardens and learn fascinating facts about
the work
of the gar
dening team.
Spot
Red
and Fallow Deer in the Parkland.
It’s a great time to view the
m from
a distance as many of the
deer are calving right now, so you might just spot a
young fawn nestled within the long grass. Or take some time out in the Allen
Bird Hid
e

a secluded space to watch nature uninterrupted. Relax by the
Meres and simply take time to find the perfect spot to sit awhile and unwind.
A firm favourite with families, find out
about the recently launched
Field to

making demonstrations,
watch the
cows being
hand
milked and hear fascinating anima

day

rare breed animals continue to be the stars of the show and there’s
den building and a woodland play trail to help the children burn off their
energy!
