Tatton tradition and make-believe magic
If you’re looking for a fairy-tale Christmas this year, Tatton Park’s Mansion has been transformed into a magical celebration of ten much-loved fairy tales.
Experience the impressive state rooms and fascinating servant’s quarters as never before. Visitors will be immersed in a dazzling world of forest green, ruby red, golden thread and snow white. Marvel at fantastic fairy-tale themed rooms, beautiful Christmas decorations and festive floral displays from the end of November right through to 5th January 2020.
Who is the fairest of them all?
Follow the Fairy Godmother’s trail through the Mansion to discover creative interpretations of legendary stories, entertaining costumed characters and the chance to make special wishes for your perfect Christmas.
Dare to join Little Red Riding Hood in the yellow Drawing Room or stroll through a sparkling wintry forest to find Snow White’s enchanted mirror to ask “Who is the fairest of them all?” Rapunzel, with her long blonde hair cascading down the Grand Staircase, might just be the answer!
A favourite for all ages is Beauty and the Beast in the atmospheric Library, exquisitely illuminated with glittering candelabra. Continue along the trail to Aladdin’s golden palace, richly decorated with Arabian rugs, and then find the password to uncover Ali Baba and his 40 thieves, veiled in mystery in the Music Room.
Calling all Prince and Princesses - will the slipper fit?
The story of Cinderella is a highlight of the visit. Children can wear a crown and have their photo taken beside the Pumpkin Carriage, before everyone tries on her slipper for size, just in case it fits!
The fascinating Servant’s Quarters pay homage to the timeless tales of Hansel and Gretel - with a magnificent Witch’s gingerbread house in the Kitchen alongside Goldilocks and the Three Bears making mischief in the Scullery! Don’t forget to conjure some spells with the Fairy Godmother in her magic pantry before you enjoy your homemade festive treat as you bid farewell.
