Vibrant colours on the Parterre in spring

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.

Our gardens are now closed for the winter until 14 February 2015.

Look out for a new spring display in the Long Garden

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.

The Long Garden

As well as spring and summer displays featuring masses of seasonal flowers, the Long Garden has a unique collection of topiary and sculpture.

The beds have been planted with thousands of Anemone and Narcissus bulbs ready for spring.

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.

We've planted repeat flowering roses so blooms are expected from late June until September.

The Water Garden

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

In spring, dusky pinks of cherry blossom and creamy-white magnolias form picture perfect reflections in the water.

Breathtaking views

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

Our ‘Cliveden views’ trail will take you around the gardens and highlights some of the most striking vistas.
