Notice: Our Woodland Car Park will be closed from 23 – 27 February inclusive so that we can carry out repairs and resurfacing. Our main garden car park will be open 10-5.30pm as normal and the woodlands can be accessed on foot from here. There is a dog walking path from the garden car park to the woodlands; please ask a member of staff on arrival for directions.
Glorious gardens overlooking the River Thames
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 will delight you in every season.
For younger visitors, the Storybook Play Den encourages imaginations to run wild as you play amongst wooden carvings of favourite storybook characters whilst the 500 metres of winding paths in the Cliveden Maze make it a challenge for all ages to find the centre.
The formal gardens give way to secluded glades, tree-lined avenues and picturesque riverside with miles of woodland walks to discover.
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).
We're looking forward to the coming weeks and our gardens springing into life again.
From February, look out for clumps of snowdrops and early crocuses dotted around the gardens. Come mid-March drifts daffodils will fill Stable Bank whilst the striking bedding display on the Parterre and thousands of anemones in the Long Garden are expected to be in full bloom by mid-April.
Mums go free on Sunday 15 March
Why not organise a family day out exploring the spring-time gardens to say 'thank you' to your mum?
Not only will the gardens offer a perfect pick me up from the winter weather, there's a further treat in store thanks to Chiltern Valley Winery in Henley-on-Thames who will be offering free wine tasting, 11am – 3pm (whilst stocks last, over 18s only).
