Vibrant summer planting in one of the 16 triangular beds on the Parterre

The Parterre will once again be a carpet of vibrant colour this summer whilst in the Long Garden elaborate topiary frames thousands of purple and cream Salvia Vista.

Of course there’s the fragrant Rose Garden with blooms gently phasing from yellow to orange to red as well.

The schemes are expected to be reaching their best from July.

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

Masses of seasonal flowers are displayed amongst a collection of topiary and sculpture.

The Long Garden has been planted with thousands of purple and cream salvias this summer.

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.

The repeat flowering roses bloom from late June until September.

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.

Sculpture

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

Can you find the piece created by William Waldorf Astor?

The 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.
