If I have a bucket list, a visit to Stowe Gardens is probably on it. Stowe is one of the masterpieces of landscape architecture, and since it was within reach during our recent visit to the UK. we were able to spend a day at it last month.
We toured the house (now a boys' school) and I was able to hit all three of the walking tours shown on the map – four if you count the walk from the visitors center. I had all three boys for most of the first, one for the second, and I did the third solo, which made everyone happy (the picture at right shows just how thrilled Grayson was after finishing two of the walks).
