New for 2018: Field to Fork - a Taste of Tatton
Delve into our Field to Fork story at Tatton; an estate which has sustained generations, from the animals reared at the historic Farm to the produce grown in our plentiful Gardens and the food available within our beautiful Parkland estate. And of course don’t miss out on the chance to find out how the food was prepared and cooked within our neo-classical Mansion’s kitchen and servant quarters. Across the estate there’s lots of exciting and interactive ways for you to learn more about this story of sustainability:
- Go on a fascinating food journey as you explore field to fork trails within the Parkland and Gardens
- Imagine the hive of activity in our Mansion kitchens as the aroma of bread in the bakehouse and cheese in the dairy wafts through the air
- Learn fascinating facts about the food varieties in our Orchard and Walled Kitchen Garden.
Field to Fork at the Farm
The centrepiece of our Field to Fork story is a £1.3million Heritage Lottery Fund investment in the Farm which officially launches in July 2018. Our atmospheric Mill has been painstakingly restored, its fascinating story told through the voice of the Miller amongst the grinding and turning of original machinery lovingly brought back to life. You’ll have the opportunity to hear intriguing soundscapes in our original slaughterhouse, witness exciting food demonstrations such as cheese and butter making, and meet colourful characters from centuries ago - don’t be late for an interview with Mr Wiglesworth, the Land Agent! And of course meet the stars of the show - our rare breed animals, including sheep, goats, pigs, cows and horses.

The Tatton Costume Ball in the Mansion
In 1897 Tatton Park hosted an extravagant costumed ball, in celebration of Wilbraham Egertons Earldom. Discover the guests and the costumes they wore, the music and colour of high society entertaining. Explore the vital role the servants had in preparing to host such an occasion and marvel at the enormous quantities of food required to feed the guests. Two newly accquired portraits of Earl and Countess Egerton wearing their ball finery will be on display for the first time, along with a replica of the costume worn by the Countess.
Maurice Egerton’s Kenyan Legacy Exhibition
Maurice, 4th Lord Egerton, left a lasting legacy in Kenya. This fascinating exhibition explores the development of his African estates and the story of his time in Kenya, where he is still celebrated and held in great affection today. With original artefacts from his travels in Africa, to the detail of his farming estate, this exhibition provides a wonderful insight into the last Lord Egerton’s time and legacy of a country he held dear.
Our upcoming events
We host a number of different events throughout the year from large shows to outdoor cinema screenings and smaller craft and education workshops. Whatever your interests you're sure to find an activity that's perfect for you. We've got a packed events calendar this Summer - here's a few to whet the appetite - but please check our events pages to see our full listing of exciting workshops, shows and events.
For nearly 400 years the estate was the property of the Egerton family until it was bequeathed to the National Trust in 1958. Today it is financed and maintained by Cheshire East Council.
