Breathtakingly beautiful landscape gardens
Embark on a journey, follow in the footsteps of 18th century tourists and immerse yourself in 250 acres of stunning, informal landscape.
A short walk down the drive and a vast landscape opens up rewarding you with a breathtaking view across the lake. With over 40 historic temples and monuments, each with their own story, our gardens incorporate history, nature and beauty in majestic surroundings.
The sheer size and space make it perfect for those who love the outdoors and enjoy walking whatever the weather, with each season bringing its own delights and unique sights. Activities, events and a wide range of walks and trails make it an ideal day out for the family throughout the year.

Have you ever wondered what the stars might sound like?
A new and unique event is coming to Stowe in February. With special funding from Arts Council England, Sounds of the Night Sky will allow you to experience the night sky at Stowe through a sound-based art installation from contemporary artist Robert Jarvis. This is one not to miss.
Get outdoors this half term
We've got space to run and play this half term so bring the kids and enjoy the fresh air. Discover stories of fairies, elves and boggarts and make your own sprite to take into the garden. Or why not try your hand at some stargazing after making your own telescope? Be quick to book on one of our events to avoid disappointment - they're quite fun.
