  • Love walking around Stowe, for me it's way too big to call it a garden could just stop at the Landscape bit of its title. A good pair of walking shoes are recommended as can easily spend an entire day...  more »

  • Great place for a day out with whole family. Lots of walking paths and beautiful architecture! As the weather was brilliant when we visited, I felt like on Greek holidays. The house from the outside is impressive, unfortunately it was closed when we visited so it's good to check before you plan your trip. You also need to pay additional charge if you want to see the house. The whole gardens are just amazing and definitely worth seeing.
  • Huge, open lawns with magnificent architecture of a diverse variety scattered around the grounds, a well kept golf course and a plethora of wildlife, all around the flowing lakes and ponds. The house itself is also an outstanding monument to architecture, sculpture and art. I traveled nearly 2 hours with friends to the "Festival of the Unexceptional" car show, but truly had one of the most *exceptional* experiences. Worth traveling to, and making a day of it to really experience the grounds and house, especially during the summer season. I hope to make many returns here.
