Stowe House
Wednesday 24 October 2018

http://taswox.org.uk/DocumentStore/ARTS%20SOCIETY%20WOXON%20Visit%20Stowe%20House%20pdf.pdfIn the 18th century, the powerful Temple-Grenville family chose to create an idyllic landscape filled with temples. Amidst these enchanting gardens, they built the most lavish temple of all, Stowe House. On the visit you will see the beautifully restored State Rooms and discover fascinating stories of how scandal, intrigue and debt brought one of England’s richest families to its knees and the house close to demolition.

The house was saved by Stowe School in 1923 and opened in partnership with them by the Stowe House Preservation Trust, an independent Charity in 2000.
With over 300 years of history there is something for everyone at Stowe House!
