BOB in to Tatton Park’s gardens today (Sunday) to celebrate, taste and learn more about delicious apples and pears.

Tatton’s gardens will be blossoming with apple and pear tasting straight from its orchards – including varieties you won’t find in the supermarket.

Meet local author Nicola Hulme for readings of her children’s book ‘Portia the Pear' from 10.30am to 4.30pm and listen to fascinating facts from its expert gardeners about apple cultivation at 1pm and 3pm.

Enjoy delicious apple-inspired dishes in the Stables Restaurant and Gardener’s Cottage tea room using apples from the orchard, and produce from the Tatton estate.

The Housekeepers Store will hold tastings of delicious locally-sourced apple juice, chutneys, cheeses and more, while you’ll be able to buy hand-picked apples, fresh from the orchard from the garden shop.
