STOWE LANDSCAPE GARDENS | BUCKS SUNDAY WALK | 7.6 MILES (12 KM) | EASY
September 9, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm BST
WALK LEADERS: Julia and Rachel
MEETING PLACE: Stowe Landscape Gardens National Trust Car Park.
(Note, please arrive by 8.50am, we will set off at 9am)
ABOUT THE WALK – grade: Moderate
A delightful saunter around the National Trust's Stowe Landscape Gardens, ‘cradle of the British Landscape Movement', created by Viscount Cobham and developed by William Kent and ‘Capability' Brown. Set amid glorious parkland with its lakes and vistas are the famous ‘monumental follies' – temples, arches, pavilions and statuary; and at its heart, the great house, now Stowe School.
You park in the National Trust car park at Stowe Gardens. These gardens are worthy of several days' exploration in themselves and have glorious trees and architecture, as well as the famous Stowe School. The walk, however, makes a circle around the famous gardens and although the return leg is through a section of the parkland, it uses public footpaths throughout and you do not need to pay any entrance or parking fee.
AFTER THE EVENT – TBC
WHAT TO BRING WITH YOU
- Good trainers or walking shoes (and other clothes of course!).
- Shorts are fine on this walk.
- It's a long walk so please bring plenty of water and snacks. We will make a number of stops along the way.
