Japanese Gardens

Devised by Hall-Walker and created between 1906-1910 by Japanese father and son Eida and Minoru, the Gardens symbolise the 'Life of Man' and the meeting of Eastern and Western cultures. Acclaimed worldwide and regarded as the finest of their kind in Europe, the Gardens achieved further indirect fame in 1909 when Hall-Walker's favourite horse - named Minoru after the Gardens' creator - won the English Derby under the royal colours of King Edward Vll. Take time to relish the Gardens' tranquil serenity and rich symbolism of human existence.
