The legend of the Willow Pattern Garden shown on Blue Pattern plates can be summarised as follows. The Chinese scenes depict a widely held belief of the story about the Mandarin's daughter who fell in love with her father's poor secretary, their elopement, pursual and transformation into a pair of doves.
The lime tree lookout provides an excellent vantage point from which to study the various wildfowl in the willow pattern lake.
The tiger tree walk high in the trees is not for the faint hearted. It is a special walk constructed in the trees which surround the tigers' enclosure to provide the opportunity for an excellent birds' eye view.
