The splendours of Stowe
Special Event | Stowe House
Saturday 18 June 2016 - 14:00 until 17:00
Featuring designs by Vanbrugh, Adam, Gibbs and Soane, Grade I listed Stowe House is a stunning 18th Century Neo-Classical mansion, commanding breathtaking panoramic views. The private guided tour will explore key periods in Stowe’s history through the stories of past residents: from its creation under Viscount Cobham, through the Dukes of Buckingham and Chandos, to the rebirth of Stowe as a school. Purcell, architects and advisers to Stowe House Preservation Trust, will present a special illustrated lecture on this century’s monumental restoration programme, returning Stowe to its former glory.
