Knutsford is a very pretty historic town, located 14 miles south-west of Manchester and 9 miles north-west of Macclesfield. The town is immediately bordered to all sides by open countryside, giving it a charming rural feeling, and there is an abundance of open green space within the town itself, including The Heath, which is thought to have hosted horse racing for nearly 200 years, ending in 1873.

Tatton Park, which can be accessed from the town centre entrance at the end of King Street, is also nearby and hosts a large variety of events throughout the year, including the RHS Flower Show. Horse racing still takes place to this day, within the grounds of the Tabley House Estate which is located less than two miles to the west of the town.
