Cheshire Travel Blog› entry 1 of 1 › view all entries
From the 22nd-25th of August Tatton Park held a family bank holiday festivel that entailed chainsaw wood cutting competitions; dog shows & dog races allowing the public to race their dogs; bird shows and various other stalls containing local produces from drinks such as local ciders and wiskey to local foods such as wild game that has been caught on Tatton park grounds.
You have to pay a fee of £4 for entery into Tatton park and further fee's into the mansion; a seperate fee for entering the gardens and also a fee for the farm yard & pets corner. There is also a fee to enter the open grounds where all of the above is held costing £7. All in all it can work out as an expensive day IF you want to into every venue. However if you dont its £11 for car parking & entering the sprawling grounds that contain the above.
It is also advisable to wear wellies; thick jackets and perhaps a scarf in the colder days as the North West has cold winds. The park contains little seating plans so if any person unstable on their legs may be safer taking a folding chair ect.
It is a great day to see new things and learn things about your local produces and sporting activities and to learn about the wildlife. It is a family activity for any age and at any time of the year.
The weekend above; I was able to see bird shows; dog racing with public dogs, have a go at archery & air rifle shooting as well as purchase local foods with delicious tastes such as garlic & mango cheese, purchase rabbit & venison located on the grounds. The park holds venues throught the year such as wedding fairs - car shows - charity walks & summer fun fairs and bank holiday fun for all the family.
Perhaps slightly expensive (as im a student) but worth it as i arrived at 9am and left a 6pm - Well worth the money for a full day of fun with the loved ones.
