Description

Stowe Landscape Gardens

One of the first and foremost of the great English landscape gardens

A beautiful creation of the 18th century, Stowe is one of Europe’s most influential landscape gardens. Hidden amongst spectacular vistas and vast open spaces are magical secret corners, hidden meanings, and over 40 monuments and temples. Visitors can also take a tour of Stowe House or explore the 300 hectares (750 acres) of surrounding historic parkland, including the newly restored 100-hectare (250-acre) Deer Park. Stowe is the perfect setting for a family picnic or for those seeking peace and tranquillity, with walks and trails for all to enjoy. With the changing seasons, continuing restoration and a calendar of events for all the family, each visit provides something new
