Family explorers: Winter wanders
Challenge your little explorers with our free guide for wild winter wanders and make the most of the sleeping gardens to discover temples, trees and tracks otherwise unseen in the leafy summer months.
- Booking not needed
- Free event (admission applies)
Kick off the New Year with a bracing winter walk around Stowe, enjoying crunchy frosts, breathing like a dragon in the cool, crisp air, or maybe even seeing a sprinkling of snow! Challenge little adventurers to tick off some wintery 50 Things activities and keep your eye out for the first signs of the famous 'Stowedrops'...

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:
|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|
