Japanese Gardens

japanese gardens

Within many of the Gardens in England that we feature on our guide are a number of Japanes Gardens which are really worth a visit.

Many people have created their own private Japanes Gardens and this page will be of interest to them. It should also help others planning a Japanese Garden.

One of our favourite Japanese Gardens is at Compton Acres in Dorset which was built in the 1920's with many of the materials being imported from Japan.

If you have a favourite please let us know.
