Overview
More
The scale, grandeur and beauty of Stowe has inspired writers, philosophers, artists, politicians and members of the public from the 18th century to the present day. Since the National Trust acquired the gardens in the late 1980s, an ambitious programme of restoration has ensured that over 40 temples and monuments remain, gracing an inspiring backdrop of lakes and valleys with an endless variety of walks and trails, a delightful visit, any time of year.

Stowe is a beautiful place to visit. The gardens, monuments and walks keep you occupied for hours. The facilities are very good and the staff very friendly. The views are stunning. Plenty of opportunities to try out your photography skills.

Many walks and temples to see. Lots of walks with well laid out paths to see the buildings and lakes. Could easily make this a day out. Combine with a visit to Stowe House if you have the time. It's a good 10 minute walk...More

We had visited Stowe before but the house had not been open that time and we were thrilled to discover we could visit the house itself which is a stunning piece of Palladian architecture inside and out and has an interesting exhibition about the family...More

While in the area we decided to visit Stowe having never been before. We were pleasantly surprised, the house was stunning to look at (although we couldn't go in) and the gardens were easy to walk round, with some lovely statues to find. We also...More

Haven't been here for years and it has changed. Brilliant café with really friendly staff. We went on my wife's birthday today and we were able to buy a whole cake from the café at a very reasonable price. The veg curry was delicious.

As the title says. Went on Saturday and despite the house being a fair walk from the entrance we decided to give it a go. Walked through some lovely gardens/grounds but when we got to the entrance we found the house closed for a private...More

We are National Trust members and probably visit a site at least twice a month. This has to be one of the easiest properties in which to walk the grounds - the paths are very good and it's generally quite level, with just a couple...More
