Discover the art housed in one of the most remarkable buildings of the 18th century. The fine neo-classical architecture of Stowe provides a stunning backdrop to the history of the people responsible for its creation. Our tour will introduce you to these larger-than-life characters through the paintings on display. There will be stories of extravagance, scandal, intrigue and the exotic to whet your appetite.
