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.

Tours of the Japanese Garden

Summer sees the return of tours of our world-renowned Japanese Garden. These popular tours are led by expert volunteers, allowing up to six visitors at a time to enter the Japanese Garden and learn more about its design, planting, water features and history. Available on Wednesdays and Saturdays only at 11.30am and 1.30pm, until end October. These are available on a first-come-first-served basis for a maximum of 6 people per tour and can be booked with staff at the Garden entrance. Ticket price is £5 per person. Unfortunately, due to the nature of the environment, the tour is not suitable for children under the age of 12.
