Tatton Flower Show

Tatton Flower Show

The Tatton Flower show is a five day event (Wednesday to Sunday) which takes place every year at Tatton Park, where gardeners from all over the word come together to present their gardens and showcase their ideas to the public. The Flower show promotes the very best of garden design. If you’re wanting to just get advice on how to grow your own veg, experts will be there to help you on whatever you need to know about growing your own garden.

If you’re bringing children along with you, there are plenty of different activities that they can take part in! There is live music, entertainment and even schools are invited along so the children can find inventive ways to showcase their ideas. Attending the event are have-a-go workshops where you and your children can get involved. There are cafes on site for refreshments, so you don’t have to bring any food or drink along with you.

Ticket prices will vary for this event depending on whether or not you’re a member of RHS and depending on what day you plan on going to the flower show.

Tatton Flower show is only a short 15 minute drive from Pickmere County House making it a perfect location to stay if you are travelling for the event. If you are wanting to stay with us at Pickmere County House then please book a month in advance as we tend to get fully booked up during this event.

American Car Show

Every year towards the end of June, Tatton Park and Cheshire Auto Promotions will come together to host the Stars and The Stripes American car show. This event allows you to get up close to around 1500 American cars dating back to the 1950’s all the way up to the 1980’s. The cars range from American Muscle cars to Mustangs, Corvettes, Hot Rods and many many more. If you are a car enthusiast or you and your family want to spend the day together, then this is the event for you.

There is so much more to see than just cars. It’s a two day event that usually lasts for around 6 hours (10am – 4pm) on a Saturday and Sunday, where you get to browse amongst motorcycles and Ex US Army and Military vehicles. We are sure that kids won’t get bored either as there are live shows, kiddie rides and a ‘wild west shootout’ for them to enjoy.

Ticket prices may vary but it is usually £9 per adult, aged 10-15 is £6 each and kids who are under 10 get in for free. Public admission is payable on the day of arrival and you will also have to pay for parking, which is usually around £7.00. There is no on site camping at this event so you will have to find somewhere local to stay if you’re travelling far.

Tatton Park is only a 15 minute drive from Pickmere County House so it isn’t that far if you’re wanting to just spend the day with family locally. Food and refreshments are available so you won’t have to worry about taking a packed lunch with you. So if you’re visiting us and you’re wanting a nice day out somewhere then do not miss this opportunity as it only comes around once a year. If you are wanting to stay with us at Pickmere County House then please book a month in advance as we tend to get fully booked up during this event.
