**Gold Winner of Large Visitor Attraction of the Year 2014 at Visit England’s Awards for Excellence**
The 50 acres of gardens at Tatton have been developing for over 200 years with each successive owner of the Tatton Park estate playing their part in its evolution. Lewis William Wyatt and Joseph Paxton, architect of Crystal Palace, designed various elements including the Conservatory which is now open to following a comprehensive restoration programme and will be `stocked’ over the coming months. Up until the death of Maurice, the Last Lord Egerton of Tatton, in 1958 the gardens continued to be enhanced and enjoyed by each of the owners of Tatton Park.
Today it is an almost complete picture of how the gardens existed in Edwardian times. The Italian Terrace at the front of the Mansion and the Japanese Garden, built over a centuary ago, are always staple highlights, no matter what time of year you visit. Our gardens include the original victorian Walled Kitchen Garden which generates seasonal produce for our on site cafe and restaurant, our New Zealand Fernery and our Orangery Glass houses and the Pleasure Gardens. Children (and adults!) visiting the gardens can also have fun navigating our maze.
Open every day 10am to 5pm through high season (April – October).
