Looking for ideas for fun family activities this Easter bank holiday weekend? Tatton Park is the ideal place to go for a fabulous programme of Easter fun.
Children of all ages will find masses to do over the whole weekend, from Friday 19th to Monday 22nd April.
There’ll be trails in the mansion, farm and gardens – with chocolate treats for all those who complete the trails – and the stableyard will be buzzing with activity.
If you’re feeling peckish head for the stableyard, where you’ll be spoilt for choice.
Or visit the award-winning Gardener’s Cottage Tearoom, with its new spring menu. Afternoon tea could be your special treat this Easter.
There are magic and puppet shows planned, and a Victorian carousel to spin around on.
You might be lucky enough to meet your favourite fairytale character and snap a quick selfie of the two of you.
Here’s what to look out for…
Little Red Riding Hood
Follow the Little Red Riding Hood trail along Dairy Wood Way. This little girl has lost her Easter eggs – can you help her to find them?
Watch out for the Big Bad Wolf who might be hiding anywhere amongst the trees!
There’s someone else planning mischief at the farm. A cunning fox really wants to catch the Gingerbread Man – can you help him escape?
There’ll be tastings of scrumptious gingerbread to keep you going, and you’ll meet our friendly farm animals as you follow the trail, including our fluffy recently hatched chicks.
There’ll be a special ‘Make your Own Gingerbread’ workshop at the farm on Thursday 18th April, where you can learn how to make your own gingerbread cookies to take home.
In the mansion, follow the Fairy Godmother’s trail and see if you can solve each fairytale clue.
Search for them in the grand state rooms and servants’ quarters to help identify the famous fairytales and claim a chocolate prize.
Spot Rapunzel and her beautiful golden hair in the Tower Garden, and look out for the secret fairy doors at the bottom of special garden trees.
Can you spot them all? There’ll also be intriguing storytelling sessions to spark everyone’s imaginations.
