Last time I went to Stowe House, as a visitor, was 10 years ago,
what a change many more rooms have been refurbished, in such a way you think you have been transformed back to 1840s,
The Stowe House Trust have received a small Heritage Lottery Fund to build a New Visitors Centre, they are just starting, but have moved the reception Desk and shop (temporary), to the Top of the spectacular Steps at the South Front of the Main House.
Whilst much of the upper Floors are dedicated to the School, now school is closed, the opportunity to see so much is worth a visit.
A one off small payment (discounted if your National Trust ) comes with the opportunity for a free pass for a whole year.
The Volunteers and Staff were so helpful, kind and knowledgeable, The Guides ( tour included in admission) seem to be trained for the good of visitors, as opposed to some Museums who's guides just want to perform, as opposed to Educate and entertain.
The Rooms which have been renovated, are spectacular, those due for renovation. give you a feeling of History in the saving.
Must go back for the Twighlight Tours,
One of the Couples in the group I was in, were staying over in a local Camp Site and coming back
the following Day.
I highly recommend this attraction for young and old alike, am trying to book time in my busy grandchildren's schedule to take them along.
