Gauntlet, Eagle & Vulture park is the largest bird of prey park in the Northwest of England. With over 120 birds of prey, ranging from the smallest owls to the worlds largest eagle and Vultures it really is a haven for animal lovers. Gauntlet has two daily shows at 12.30 and 3 during the months March-Oct and during the winter months weekends only. As well as our two daily displays we have vulture feeding and meet & greet. We have a large children's play area with plenty of room for picnics. We are on the same site as Fryers garden centre and you can leave at anytime and come back for our displays. For those wishing to get closer we have bird of prey experiences which are run 7 days a week throughout the year. This gives people the opportunity to handle and fly the birds.
We visited the park with my elderly parents and two young grand children aged 6 and 11. We all had a wonderful experience with Meet and Greet sessions , the Vulture experience and the wonderful flying experience at the end of the day when over 30 birds gave an awe inspiring display set to music. What a great day out and very reasonable. We had a snack type lunch and coffees from the little cafe area but my daughter and partner along with their children went to the Garden Centre next door as they are gluten free. The birds are well looked after, well loved , staff are knowlegeable and enthuiastic. I cannot fault it at all.

Located in 1,000 acres of beautiful deer park, the former Egerton family home is open for you to explore. You're welcome to uncover centuries of history at the Medieval Old Hall and witness life above and below stairs in the Mansion. Wander at leisure through 50 acres of award-winning Gardens and take the family to meet very special rare breed animals at our working Farm. You'll love stopping off in the Stableyard where you can sit back, eat, drink, browse and buy. With over 100 events a year it's the perfect day out! 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.
'Lovely walk around Tatton Park Gardens and parkland today, superb Japanese Garden, Italian Garden at front of house, formal gardens, woodland and aboretum, plenty of wildfowl on the lake and herds of deer to watch. Plenty of benches. Some areas (rose garden, Tower garden, maze, fernery, glasshouses /orangery) closed due to SD measures. Lovely Autumn colours. Thanks to the Marketing Department staff who helped with questions before our visit. Will return. '

There are step stones or lots into the lake. Not for us. Children and teens all had a go. Nice place to sit and fish, watch people and have a picnic.
Wallwood is a small (0.679 acres) woodland at the top of King St, near the entrance to Tatton Park. It is a perfect place to enjoy a lunch or relax in a small but perfectly formed woodland.
