Days out with the kids
Planning a day out with the kids? Macclesfield has a variety of child-friendly activities and attractions for all the family to enjoy.
An all time family favourite in the immediate vicinity is Tegg’s Nose Country Park. A stunning park in the heart of Cheshire, the dry stone walls and study barns add to the dramatic character of valleys and steeply sided valleys and old quarries. On a clear day, you can also see Liverpool’s Cathedrals and Welsh hills beyond. Tegg’s Nose Country park has received a Certificate of Excellence on Trip Advisor.
With popular stalls that sell food, drink, jewellery, odds and ends, the bustling monthly Treacle Market in Macclesfield is home to many hidden gems. Each market is hosted on the last Sunday of each month.
If you’re visiting Macclesfield for a family outing, Macclesfield Forest is a place of stunning natural beauty. Whether you are walking or mountain biking, you can experience amazing views across the Peak District and towards Cheshire’s highest point, Shining Tor.
Enjoy a delightful walled garden, parkland and woodland at the National Trust’s Hare Hill. Enjoy Charles Brocklehurst’s informal garden as it comes alive in spring. The walled garden has been restored in line with Brocklehurst’s vision. On warm days, enjoy following the hare trail through the woods, followed by a picnic. Autumn provides a great opportunity for invigorating walks around the garden and surrounding parkland.
