The Long Garden

This spring the Long Garden will be filled with the vibrant red-orange glow of 21,500 Tulip 'Avignon'.

Come summer, the beds will be a riot of colour once again as we display thousands of Gazania 'Daybreak'.

The Parterre

The view from the 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 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’ downloadable trail will take you around the gardens and highlights some of the lesser known yet striking vistas.

Sculpture

From the grand Fountain of Love on the main drive, to the amiable ancient baboons in the Long Garden the gardens reveal a magnificent collection of sculpture.

Can you find the piece created by William Waldorf Astor?
