**Gold Winner of Large Visitor Attraction of the Year 2014 at Visit England’s Awards for Excellence**
Set amidst more than 50 acres of gardens, at the heart of 1,000 acres of landscaped parkland, the elegant Mansion house at Tatton Park sits in an elevated position. The impressive portico of the South Front dominates the view of the house from the parkland. From the turn of the 18th century the Egerton family made a home on this site. An earlier house was extensively re-modelled in the Neo- Classical style, between 1780 and 1813 by the architects Samuel Wyatt (1737-1807) and Lewis William Wyatt (1777-1853). The rich furnishings of the Tatton Park mansion and its important collection of paintings and books reflect the growing wealth and status of the Egerton family at the end of the 18th and during the 19th centuries.
The mansion houses one of the National Trust’s finest libraries and an outstanding collection of Gillow’s of Lancaster furniture. Add to this the extensive array of domestic offices and servants’ quarters and the Mansion offers a complete view of life in days gone by. The Maurice Egerton Exhibition and seasonal exhibitions are included in your admission.
Open Wednesday to Sunday 1pm to 5pm through high season (April – October).
Please check Tatton Park’s website when planning your visit.
