Set high above the Thames with far-reaching views, Cliveden's impressive gardens and majestic woodlands capture the grandeur of a bygone age. Follow in the footsteps of dukes, earls and royalty as you explore a series of gardens, each with their own special charm. From the formality of the Parterre with its vibrant floral displays to the quirky statuary and topiary in the Long Garden, the gardens delight in every season. For younger visitors, the Storybook Play Den encourages imaginations to run wild among wooden carvings of favourite storybook characters, whilst 500 metres of winding paths in the Cliveden Maze make it a challenge for all ages. The formal gardens give way to secluded glades, tree-lined avenues and picturesque riverside with miles of woodland walks. Once the home of the Astors, the house is now a luxury hotel but you can take a peek inside by joining a short guided tour on Thursday or Sunday afternoons from April to October (timed ticket required).
