Stowe Gardens appeal

Stowe Gardens was once Europe’s most influential landscape garden. We need help to rebuild its grand temples and heroic statues for us all to enjoy

Help restore Stowe Gardens to its former glory

We want to bring Stowe Gardens and its lost stories back to life and restore its 18th-century splendour. Your gift will help fund our restoration project at Stowe – replacing missing statues, restoring magnificent monuments and repairing historic temples.

How the appeal adds up

  • The National Trust acquired the landscape gardens in 1989
  • This huge restoration programme is made up of 54 individual projects
  • We need £2.65 million to return the gardens to their original state
