 Description of Garden
Designer: Sir John Vanbrugh, Charles Bridgeman, William Kent, Capability Brown, James Gibbs
One of the finest Georgian landscape gardens extending over 400 acres, with valleys and vistas, lakes and rivers and more than 30 temples and monuments designed by many of the leading architects of the 18th century. The one and a half mile avenue leading from the Buckingham entrance to the triumphal Corinthian arch gives just a taste of the many treasures to be explored.

The brand new visitor centre, built on the site of the historic coaching Inn, gives visitors a chance to experience these magnificent gardens in a completely different way. The careful restoration of the Inn has been the centre of a £9 million project, which includes the creation of a large new cafe, meeting room for the community and a gift shop with plant sales. The Inn's rooms have also been taken back to their original look, with the sounds, smells and atmosphere of its former bustle recreated, so visitors can now get a real taste of what it must have been like to arrive here in the 18th Century. Thanks to an ambitious 20-year programme of restoration, the gardens of Stowe offer a delightful and inspiring day out in glorious surroundings.
 History of Garden
Originally the concept of the first owner Viscount Cobham, the gardens at Stowe were continually extended and enhanced by many famous architects and designers, not least Capability Brown, who was employed as Head Gardener there from 1741, though Charles Bridgeman had been responsible for the original landscape design. The vast mansion has been a school since 1923 and the gardens have been in the hands of the National Trust since 1989, when a major programme of restoration and re-constitution began, with spectacular results.
