Explore at your own pace

Delve into the stories you choose...

During the school holidays you can explore Stowe's state rooms at your own pace and delve into the stories you choose.

After exploring at your own pace if you decide you would like to join either of our tours, A Tale of Stowe or The Full Story, you are welcome to head back to the Welcome Centre and join the next tour.

Let our Room Stewards tell you a story...

As you explore our State Rooms you will come across some of our friendly Room Stewards. If you have time for a chat they will tell you a little about the the room your are in – discover the hidden histories!

Explore with our House map

When you arrive in our Welcome Centre you will be given a House map. This helps you get around the building and also explores one of the important stories of Stowe – the downfall of the 2nd Duke of Buckingham and Chandos, a mischievous character in Stowe's history!
