Stowe Landscape Garden was created in the 18th Century and regarded as one of Europe's most influential. There's delightful planting and structures at Stowe and it's a beautiful place to enjoy some peace and quiet! A National Trust site, with lovely cafe.
- There are more than 40 monuments, temples and secret places, beautiful ornamental lakes, wooded valley and walks around the gardens and parklands.
- In 1989, Stowe became part of the National Trust. Its gardens were overgrown, the lakes silted up and monuments crumbling. It has been a lengthy restoration (not yet complete) but the beauty of Stowe has re-emerged.
- Ideal for picnics too...
