Stowe Landscape Gardens

Posted on: December 4th, 2011 by Rob

The Trust owns several great landscape parks and gardens in the late 18th-century English Landscape Style. None is more important than Stowe, one of the most significant survivals of a period that had a tremendous impact on the face of Britain’s countryside.

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.
