Stowe House Photo Tour

Stowe House, one of the great stately homes of England, is set in probably the most influential landscape garden ever created. The house is run as a school, but is now open to visitors. The interior showcases a wonder set of state rooms looking out over the South Vista created by Capability Brown. Chief of the interior rooms is the superb Marble Hall with its conical dome.
