Banish the winter blues with a walk amongst our spring blooms

Follow in the footsteps of dukes, earls, kings and queens as you stroll through our impressive gardens.

We're looking forward to spring when seasonal flowers bring the gardens to life again. Bountiful blossom and colour are expected with drifts of daffodils, a new spring display on the Parterre and pretty narcissus and anemones in the Long Garden.

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 beds have been planted with thousands of narcissus and anemone bulbs this spring.

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.

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.
