Photo Tour of Stowe Landscape Gardens

Photos of Stowe Landscape Gardens, near Buckingham, Buckinghamshire. Stowe is a superb garden set around a stately home. The list of people involved in Stowe's creation reads like a who's who of 18th century English architecture and landscape garden design, from Capability Brown and William Kent to John Vanbrugh and Charles Bridgman. The result is a superb example of that very English phenomenon, the landscape garden, eeplete with classical temples and statuary.
