Where to walk this winter

Snowdrops growing in the garden at Kingston Lacy


It won’t be long before you see the gardens bursting with snowdrops or as we fondly like to call them ‘Stowedrops’. Enjoy chilly walks in the New Year to spot them peeping through before they develop in their masses throughout the Elysian Fields, Sleeping Wood and Lamport Garden.

Supporter groups in Thames Valley 

There are loads of friendly National Trust supporter groups in the Thames Valley. They help support our places like Stowe, Hughenden and Greys Court by volunteering and fundraising. They also get together for fun days out, holidays and lectures.
