Stowe can mean different things to who you ask. To some, it’s a stately home or school, while for others, it’s a famous corner on a racetrack – but they’re all linked. The corner is named after the school that’s based at Stowe House, where this walk takes place.
The gardens and the majority of the parkland at Stowe are listed grade I separately from the House. The large grounds, all part of the National Trust, allow you to pause and reconnect with nature. The renowned gardens are an amazing site and area to walk around, as is the Octagon Lake, with it being extremely accessible with footpaths.
This is a large area, so even if you don’t manage to see all of Stowe and its grounds, it’s well worth another visit to stretch your legs and relax.
