The Eaton Estate is only open to the public four times a year, these photos show why should take advantage of this rare opportunity.

Eaton Hall is the home of the Duke of Westminster and the Duchess of Westminster and lies just south of the village of Eccleston and is separated from the village of Aldford by the River Dee.

The Eaton Estate covers 10,000 acres, with farmland, extensive gardens and a number of fountains and sculptures. Eaton Park, which the Hall is within is 300 acres and the Hall’s gardens are 90 acres.

Access to the estate is extremely limited as it remains a private residence although it has become a venue for various charity events over the years, including events for the Prince’s Trust as well as the annual Cheshire Woman of the Year Awards.

You can explore the grounds during the series of the Eaton Hall Garden Open Days that sees the estate open its doors to the public for just four days in the year. All the proceeds from these open days are donated to four local charities that are selected every year. The family’s philanthropic activities and the giving of the Grosvenor Estate is represented by Westminster Foundation

Have you visited the gardens during one of these open days? Or have you explored the nearby villages of Eccleston or Aldford? Upload your images to the Cheshire Life reader photo gallery.
