Tatton Park Gardens

Pre-booking advisable, but not essential – everyone welcome.

The Gardens at Tatton Park: Winter

Our Gardens offer a special kind of space during the winter months. Many visitors come for the peace and quiet. Some come to admire the longer views across the lawns through leafless trees. And others seek out the hopeful signs of new growth once daylight hours start to lengthen. 

Whatever your age, you can find your very own perfect corner. It may be where you can soak up the tranquility of the Japanese Garden, or as you run through our maze. You can stretch your legs along the full length of Broad Walk, to be rewarded with a fabulous view of the Parkland at the Choragic Monument, or study dozens of native varieties of apple and pear trees in our historic Orchard. Grow-Your-Own fans will love our Walled Kitchen Garden and there's usually a bench for everyone at this time of year near the Italian Terrace.

Once you have entered the Gardens during your chosen entry slot, you're free to explore for as long as you wish until closing at 4pm.

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.
