Jubilee: Grand Opening of the Royal Route

Come along for the grand opening of the Royal Route through the historic gardens at Stowe on Friday 3 June.

  • Booking not needed
  • Admission applies

A weekend of relaxed, self-led events is planned to celebrate Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee at the National Trust Gardens at Stowe, Buckinghamshire.

This year, Queen Elizabeth II becomes the first British Monarch to celebrate 70 years on the throne, having acceded to the throne in 1952, at the age of 25.

Stowe’s programme of events for the extended Public Holiday weekend in June includes a Beacon Lighting ceremony with open air Ceilidh Band and piper, the opening of a new Royal Route within the historic gardens, a Big Royal Picnic and a ‘bring your own’ Street Party.

Come along for the grand opening of the Royal Route through the historic gardens at Stowe. Explore the new Royal Route which will take you to all the places at Stowe with Royal connections.

You can also visit our new exhibition which includes photos and recollections of royal visits to Stowe, or even take a guided tour with one of our knowledgeable volunteers (BSL tours will also be available).

The gardens will be open for the extended hours of 10am-7pm. General admission applies.

What is Gift Aid?

Most of our places run the Gift Aid on Entry scheme at their admission points.

Under this scheme, if you're not a member you have the choice of two entry tickets:

  • Gift Aid Admission
  • Standard Admission

If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you a clear choice between the Gift Aid Admission prices and the Standard Admission prices at the admission point. It's entirely up to you which ticket you choose.

Gift Aid Admission includes a 10 per cent or more voluntary donation. Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid - an extra 25 per cent - potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.

An extra £1 paid under the scheme can be worth over £3 to the National Trust as shown below:

  Gift Aid Standard
Amount paid by visitor £11.00 £10.00
Tax refund from Government* £2.75 £0.00
Total received by the National Trust £13.75 £10.00
