Attraction in Buckingham
Explore more than 40 monuments, temples and secret corners, ornamental lakes, wooded valleys and spectacular views; Miles of walks and trails through the gardens and surrounding parkland
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 newly restored 250-acre Deer Park has recently opened and restoration continues in other areas of the Park and gardens. 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 Trust's excellent guide will help to explain the symbolism and allegorical nature of many of the landscape's features and the monuments.
While you are visiting us you can also enjoy the comforts of the National Trust Tea-room and shop. There are events held throughout the year for all ages.
The magic of the gardens provide the perfect setting for the Monuments and Temples that compliment the landscape to create a truly unforgettable experience at Stowe Landscape Gardens.
