In response to increasing concerns relating to the spread of COVID-19 and in order to protect the health and wellbeing of our Volunteers, Staff and Visitors we have taken the decision to temporary close Stowe House to the public, effective immediately until further notice. We are very sorry to have to close and as a small independent charity, we have not taken this decision lightly.
We release our House tickets one month before the date of the visit. We don't release them sooner because Stowe House is a working building and so our opening times can be subject to change. If the date of your visit is not yet available then please come back and book nearer your visit.
If the date is grey and you cannot click on it, it means that we are closed for that day or it is the day of the visit
Trying to book tickets for today? Unfortunately we do not take online bookings on the day of your visit. You can still purchase your ticket on the day at the National Trust entrance or at the Stowe House Welcome Centre subject to availability.
House only visit? (so you do not visit the National Trust gardens) it is important you get in touch so we can arrange parking at the private, Stowe School, entrance to site. Please email us or telephone 01280 818002 to arrange access.
Please note that Essential Carer tickets are only valid with another paying visitor.
