Family cycling at Stowe

Family cycling at Stowe

Take in a different perspective of Stowe exploring the parkland on two wheels. Enjoy the out and back route by starting at the New Inn visitor centre, follow the curve of the HaHa and take in hidden sights such as the Bourbon Tower and General Wolfe's Obelisk. Download a map of the five mile route or ask a member of the team for a copy of a cycling map when you arrive.

Arriving by bike? Whether you are using us for a coffee and cake stopping point, or heading off to explore the garden on foot, let our team know and you’ll get free entry to the garden.
