Christmas at Tatton Park, Cheshire

Christmas At Tatton Park

Set in 1000 acres of stunning Cheshire countryside, Tatton Park features a Mansion, Old Hall, Farm, Gardens and Stables Restaurant and is a delight to visit during the festive season with lots to see and enjoy.

The 50 acres of impressive Gardens are in their winter colours and your ticket will include access to enjoy the Italian, Topiary, Japanese and Walled Kitchen Gardens in their winter bloom.

Tatton’s Christmas Events this year are inspired by the Egerton family’s travels to Venice and the Grand Tour. The influence of Italy on the Mansion and Gardens is reflected in the Mansion’s books, furniture and paintings, in particular the Canalettos hanging in the Drawing Room.

After an introductory explanation of the history of Tatton at Christmas, groups may wander at leisure through the Staterooms to admire the collections and beautiful festive displays. The decoration demonstrations in the kitchen offer some ideas and tips to create your own at home.
