  • This place is great to walk around I went here with my 8 & 3 yr old and they too really enjoyed it, as you drive up to the car parking area you marvel at the shear size of an arch way ahead and it loo...  more »
  • Love Stowe, great for walking the dog and a quick coffee . the only negative, although the cafe is good it's a little expensive but hey the coffee nice and people are great. 
  • Beautiful views from every angle with lots to see and do. Go and explore a number of different follies, learn about their history, and stay in the Landmark Trust's 'Gothic Temple'.

  • Very pleasant. Lots of places to take a stroll (or a buggy if you don't fancy the walk!). We had to cut our visit short as it was much larger than we thought it was. Give yourself a good few hours to enjoy it all.
  • Excellent day out with extensive gardens with great views. Good walks with loads of interesting sculptures and folly buildings. Admission is expensive but worth it if you make at least a half day visit - bring a picnic! Restaurant and shop near the entrance and a tea / coffee shop at the far end of the gardens. Dog and wheelchair friendly. A free golf cart shuttle runs from the entrance to the park (about 5-500 metres) during busy times. Stowe will also lay on golf buggy tours of the gardens for people with mobility issues - check availability in advance.
  • Lovely large gardens with lots of unusual buildings and statues to see. Wear comfortable shoes. The guided tours (NT) are interesting and reveal lots of hidden meanings behind the gardens you would other wise miss. Pick a nice sunny day if you can.
  • The gardens are good however it gets very busy now so not a quiet stroll more of a conveyor belt of people. Food is disappointing and service is generally very slow.
  • Beautiful, well kept garden. Great day out for the either couples or a family. Dog friendly too (ground only).
