Things to do
There has been a manor house in Stoke Poges since before the Norman Conquest of 1066. The current Manor House dates from Tudor times and has a grisly history – Charles I was prisoner here before his beheading in 1649.
Stoke Park was originally home to Britain’s first Country Club, and a 27-hole championship golf course opened here in 1909. Tennis is also a key fixture, as the estate hosts the Boodles tennis championship each June as a warm up to Wimbledon.
If the little ones are getting restless, why not encourage them to burn off some energy with a visit to Delta Force Paintball? Situated in Gerrards Cross, it’s easy to get to from Stoke Poges, and makes for an exhilarating day out.
