Tatton Park

Posted on: December 4th, 2011 by Rob

The Thatched Tea House is the centrepiece of the Japanese Garden at Tatton Park. It was commissioned by the 3rd Lord Egerton in 1910 and is one of the best examples of an English Edwardian interpretation of the Oriental style.

The gardens have recently been restored to their original – if not authentic state.

This is one of the most complete historic estates open to visitors. The early 19th-century Wyatt house sits amid a landscaped deer park and is opulently decorated, providing a fine setting for the Egerton family’s collections of pictures, books, china, glass, silver and specially commissioned Gillows furniture. The theme of Victorian grandeur extends into the garden, with its Fernery, Orangery, Rose Garden, Tower Garden, Pinetum, and Italian and Japanese gardens. The restored Walled Garden includes a Kitchen Garden and magnificent glasshouses, where traditional methods of gardening are used.
