Cliveden Gardens

Cliveden Gardens, near Taplow

The Long Garden at Cliveden with its topiary and statuary is really impressive.

Cliveden is a spectacular estate with great formal gardens and acres of woodland, with the back of the house overlooking the Parterre and the River Thames. There is a Japanese water garden, splendid rose garden, woodland and riverside walks with magnificent vistas. The topiary in the Long garden is quite unique and will be of interest to those who love this type of gardening. Notable designs influenced by Sir Geoffrey Jellicoe, Graham Thomas, John Fleming and Norah Lindsay can be seen across the grounds.

The present house, the third on the site, was built in 1851 by Charles Barry.  Once the home of  Nancy, Lady Astor, it is now let as a hotel and is open only on certain days. This property is owned by The National Trust.
Admission to Cliveden House by timed ticket on Thursday and Sunday afternoons April - October.
