Things to do in Knutsford, Cheshire
The Town has a strongly Georgian feel to it, as you stroll casually down King Street, known as the bottom street, and Princess Street known as the top Street.
Each May the whole town comes to life with the Knutsford Royal Mayday Procession and the visiting fair ground on the heath, held on the first Saturday of the month since 1864, apart from the war years.
The Queen is attended by Her Ladies in waiting and her Guards. There are lots of interesting characters in the procession, amongst them is Jack in the Green, the origins of this are probably lost in time.
Vehicles and pedestrians are welcome when the site is open. You can buy refreshments and souvenirs.
