Stowe has attracted visitors for over 300 years. It has picture perfect views, winding paths and lakeside walks.  It’s a timeless landscape reflecting the changing seasons, full of hidden meaning; the gardens were created as an earthly paradise and still cast their spell today.

Contrasting with these were garden buildings such as the temples and monuments that still survive in the gardens today. Paths were used to entice visitors to certain views, only revealed at the last moment. The grass paths at Stowe have more horticultural interest, such as spring flowers and contrasting foliage.

With 250 acres of gardens to look after we keep our gardeners very busy at Stowe. If you manage to spot one of them please stop and have a chat - they're a friendly bunch and will be glad to answer your questions.

Stowe was never just a garden. Its creator, Lord Cobham, set the gardens out to reveal his beliefs about the politics and morality of the day. Which path will you choose - Vice, Virtue or Liberty?

Infrared (IR) - This event should provide a good opportunity to shoot Infrared.  If you have an Infrared camera please do bring it along.  If you have not used Infrared then take a look at this article from Photography Life.  We will have an infrared camera available on the day for you to try.  

Whether you are new to photography or a seasoned photographer you are very welcome.  If you would like to stay the whole day or just spend a few hours then you can contact  the organiser to find his current location to meet up at a time that suits you.  

Although this is not a workshop there will be a small number of helpers on the day to assist with set ups and provide some suggestions for images. 

The aim is to enjoy being out taking pictures and to spend some time with other photographers.

We will set some tasks to help get those creative juices flowing and with the images taken on the day we will produce a Blog and a Gallery that will be featured on the RPS web site.

Note - Stowe House is not owned by the National Trust.  Additional charges apply for both members and non members of the NT to enter.  See full prices here.
