About the Gardens

The 50 acres of landscaped gardens at Tatton Park are the product of almost 300 years of cultivation. Each successive owner from the Egerton family played a part in the evolution of the Gardens by seeking the expertise of the leading landscape architects of the time. As one of the most picturesque gardens in England, it shows visitors today an almost complete picture of how it would have looked in Edwardian times. Why not visit us to discover your favourite corner and embark on an new adventure, or just sit and admire the view.

All of the different areas of the Garden provide their own atmosphere, plant and tree varieties, stunning seasonal views and wildlife delights. Popular features include the Walled Kitchen Garden, 100 year old Japanese Garden, historic Glasshouses, and Pleasure Grounds.
