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 a vast restoration project at Stowe. We could replace missing statues, restore magnificent monuments and repair historic temples.

How the appeal adds up

  • The National Trust acquired the landscape gardens in 1990
  • We need £2.5 million to return the gardens to their original state
  • Approximately 500 lime mortar repairs are needed for the temple’s façade
