Featuring 50 famous Roald Dahl covers and loaned from the collection at the Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre in Buckinghamshire (, the exhibition includes a choice of covers which are visually very different and in a number of languages including French, Arabic, Mandarin and Japanese.
The book covers also feature artwork from famous illustrators across the globe, from the iconic Quentin Blake to Jill Bennett, Nancy Exholm Burkert and Emma Chichester Clark.
Tatton Park staff are also getting involved by showcasing their own books that have been passed down to generations over the years.
Little ones can also grab a gloriously scrumptious bite at the Stables. From grabbable grub lunch boxes full of tasty treats to scrummy mains and heavenly sweet treats, the all new children’s menu is completely inspired by Roald Dahl and is the perfect way to fill up after a day of fun.

    Now this is brilliant. I read Roald Dahl books to my niece via Skype and this would be such fun for us to visit x

    This sounds absolutely brilliant and amazing experience for Roald Dahl fans, admittedly, I have never read anything he has done,

Are we nearly there yet? is a new online blog run by me, Kara Guppy, and is named as such thanks to my daughter Eliza who always asks that very question when we are less than 5 minutes up the road heading off on our adventures. You may know me from my other family blog
