There are plenty of activities in which kids can take part at Stowe Landscape Gardens throughout August, to coincide with the launch of a new children’s Explorer map.
The map is aimed at helping youngsters to find the 40 different monuments and temples and can be picked up at reception or downloaded from www.nationaltrust.org.uk/stowe
To complement the new map, free events, including a mini-beast safari and the opportunity to make a fairy or elf, will run every Tuesday in August, but must be pre-booked.
There will also be a geology week from August 11 until 17, with events aimed at children and adults.
