Today, this cherished corner of Tatton Park's Gardens is enjoyed by thousands of people every year. Discover the inspirations behind the Japanese Garden and its everlasting legacy at Tatton Park.

The history of the Japanese Garden

Inspired by what he saw at the Anglo-Japanese Exhibition in London 1910, Alan decided to introduce his own Japanese garden at Tatton, at a time when Japanese gardens were starting to become fashionable amongst Britain's rich and elite families. What was created is now thought to be one of the finest examples in Europe. Discover more about the history and development of his Japanese garden, the inspirations behind it, its remarkable construction, ambitious restoration and lasting legacy.
