    This Park must be unique in that it provides to those who arrive on foot free access to 50 acres of gardens and parkland and a 1000 acre deer park. There is also a 1930s rare breeds farm.(Charge)
    The property is financed and maintained by Cheshire County Coucil for the National Trust.
    There is an admission charge to the House which dates from the early 1800s and was home to the Egerton family; displays of their collection of fine Gillow furniture, pictures, silver and porcelaine are exhibited.
    (Free admission for NT members to the House and Gardens)

    But it is the Gardens which draw most people and on our recent Bank Holiday visit at the end of May there was a carnival atmosphere with fairground carousels in the stable yards and a Wedding Party on the lawns.

    The historic centre of Knutsford has been recorded on small displays along the streets. While walking along the top or bottom streets (Princess Street and King Street), try to find them to add to your knowledge of the town.

    On the first Saturday of May each year, the town celebrates a traditional May Day Festival. The main streets of the town are closed and crowds line the pavements as an assortment of brass bands, morris dancers, penny farthings and, most importantly, the towns' children dressed in historic costumes march through the streets. The parade concludes in crowning of the May Queen, which is a prestigious appointment for one of the town's youngsters.
    The festival coincides with launch of the travelling fair season, with a large collection gathering on the town's Heath and providing thrills for the good towns' folk.

    Want a guaranteed great meal and entertainment too? The Knutsford Wine Bar has it all. Located in the Old Chapel and Grammar School right in the heart of lively Knutsford. It has an intimate and lively feel to it and the staff are fun and really helpful. And the food? Incredible! They are always changing the menu, but I have never had anything less than a fantastic experience when I eat here. The varied menu means you could have a Thai started with and Italian main dish. Their wine selection is second to none. They even won awards in 2003 & 2004 from Cheshire Life Magazine for their superior food.

    The Knutsford Wine Bar also has loads of live entertainment. As they say themselves:

    ‘Check out our live acts, live bands, live music, our menu and our wine list by visiting’
    www.thebestof.co.uk/knutsford/2/events.aspx
    or call us on 01565 750459

    They describe it as a complete night out and it is!

    Excellent for business travellers staying at Cottons Hotel.

    And a bit of history:

    A Chapel stood on the site built in the 14th century. It was replaced by the Parish Church built in 1744. It also served as the Grammar School until 1887.

    Favorite Dish:
    I try different dishes every time I visit and they have all been fantastic. I have included a picture of their current menus.

    Robbie Williams sang about Knutsford City Limits so I always make a point of going to Knutsford Service Station when I am in the area, which is generally only when I go to football.

    What to buy: As in most service stations you can buy most kinds of snacks and choclates, sandwiches, magazines, newspapers, CD's and various other things. Along with this there is a fast food restaurant and amusement arcade.

    Oh yes and you can buy fuel here as well.

    What to pay: As it is a service station you will generally pay over the odds.
