If you can’t visit Tatton Park, the Garden can come to you!
Tatton Park’s Garden is a place for quiet reflection and peaceful retreat from our busy lives, and it is in our nature and purpose to be able to share it with visitors. However, due to the government’s latest restrictions regarding working arrangements and social distancing, the decision was taken to close Tatton Park for the period of the ‘lockdown’.
But all is not lost! Download the Candide Gardening app today and let Tatton Park’s Garden come to you. If you haven’t downloaded an app before, here’s what to do:
- Go to your phone’s App Store or Google Play
- Search for Candide Gardening and download the app
- In the app, go to ‘Places’
- Search for Tatton Park
- Select ‘Tour’

It’s like the Head Gardener is talking directly to you!
Listen as our Head Gardener, Simon Tetlow explores 19 areas of Tatton Park’s 50-acre Garden.
