Summer planting on the Parterre

Follow in the footsteps of dukes, earls, kings and queens as you stroll through a series of impressive gardens, each with their own special charm.

From the iconic Parterre with its ever-changing floral displays to the statuary and topiary in the Long Garden, the gardens delight in every season.

 

The Parterre

The view from the South Terrace looking out over the Parterre is one not to be missed.

The beds are planted with spring and summer bedding displays creating a carpet of colour.

Rose Garden

Our Rose Garden is based on Sir Geoffrey Jellicoe's original 1950s design and includes over 900 roses in shades of red, orange and yellow.

This year's display has now ended but we're expecting the garden to bloom again from June 2015.

Water Garden

The Water Garden's oriental character was created for Lord Astor using water, rocks and a Chinese pagoda.

The reflections in the lake are particularly stunning in the autumn when the maples turn a vibrant red.

The Long Garden

Our Long Garden features striking spring and summer floral displays.

Our display of Gazania Daybreak has now finished so we're preparing the beds for next spring when the garden will be a riot of colour once again.

Breathtaking views

Perched high on the cliffs, our gardens have always been famous for their stunning views.

Our ‘Cliveden views’ downloadable walk will take you around the gardens and highlights some of the lesser known yet striking vistas.
