We hope business use it as an opportunity to get the recognition they deserve with the chance to go straight through to compete at England level and potentially be the best in the country!”

Brendan Flannagan, Visitor Economy Manager at Cheshire East Borough Council comments,
“In 2009 & 2010 Tatton Park won ‘Large Visitor Attraction of the Year’. This award clearly demonstrates to all our visitors our ongoing commitment to quality, innovation and service. We are delighted to be taking part again in the 2011 awards.”
