Walk description:

Once inside Tatton Park walk towards Tatton Hall on Knutsford Drive. Although this is the main road to Tatton Hall it does not have general traffic on it and will not be busy.

You will pass a huge lake on the right hand side.

After the cattle grid you will come across a turning to the right, sign posted to the outdoor centre. Take this road and head up towards the outdoor centre and parking area.

As soon as you are able head right to walk around the lake. There is a gravel path for a short while and then the path takes you over grass.

The path forks into two, take the path to the left which heads towards the wood. You will come across a metal kissing gate which can be easily naviagted with a buggy. Walk through Dog Wood and through a second metal kissing gate.

Head over the rail way bridge and you will come out into a residential area. This road is called Teal Avenue. Follow the road around and head towards the main road through Knutsford. This is called Mobberley Road. Keep on the right hand side of the road and walk towards the town centre.

You will pass Moordale road, then take the next right which is Middlewalk. Head down the hill, take care with the buggy. Go under the bridge and walk through the park. There is a small lake on the right and to the left a play park.

Cross the road and head towards Kings Street. There are lots of pubs and restaurants/cafes on this street if you want to relax after your walk.

Head down Kings Street and you will arrive back at the entrance to Tatton Park.

Additional notes:

This is a National Trust property and although entrance is free for pedestrians, cars do have to pay £4.00. This applies whether you are a National Trust member or not. We found several roads outside of the main park where you could park for free. Try Mereheath Lane which is the turning on the left before the main entrance to Tatton Park.

Lots of wildlife/animals to be seen - sheep, deer, variety of ducks and birds.

Tatton house has a lovely restaurant which does very reasonably priced food and drink.

Although some of the walk is along the road, it is only the road to the main house and not one for general traffic. The road is surfaced with tarmac and is therefore ideal.

The grass area is more suited to all terrain buggies.
