Stowe

Estimated reading time: 4 minutes

Stowe is part of the National Trust, located in Buckingham, Buckinghamshire. Likewise, Stowe has plenty of open space full of parkland, gardens, and statues too.

My partner decided to surprise me by buying a family membership so that my son and I could venture out to several National Trust historical places during the summer without it costing us every time.

Entry to Stowe.

Drive Up to Stowe.

The drive up to Stowe is impressive because it feels like you are entering a historical landmark of magnitude. Furthermore, you see in the distance this elegant Corinthian Arch as you approach Stowe.

Parkland.

There are plenty of benches as you walk around to sit down for rest breaks. More so, we were able to view the swans by the lake at the same time.

Statues.

As we made our way around Stowe, we all gazed at the golden statue, better known as the statue of Venus. In addition to the Venus statue, we walked by the Temple of British Worthies. Furthermore, if you look closely at the photo, you will see my son standing in the centre of the head statues.

Stowe House.

We took time to take in the impressive architectural design of Stowe House. The lion statues on either side of the entrance added more character to its design too.

My partner also mentioned that Stowe House was rented out to film part of the X-Men scenes in the movie.

The Lake.

Lastly, we walked across the Palladian Bridge. It was here we took a moment to embrace the tranquil landscape and lakeside view.
