The grand approach to the house, past the Fountain of Love

Glitter and grandeur

Famously home to the Astors and now a luxury hotel, Cliveden House has always hosted glittering parties in grand surroundings.

Today, National Trust visitors can take a peek inside by joining a timed ticket tour of part of the interior on Thursday or Sunday afternoons from April to October.

Visiting the house

Cliveden House is now a luxury hotel, however you can take a tour on Thursday or Sunday afternoons (3-5.30pm) from April to October. Please reserve your ticket at the information centre when you arrive.

The chapel

The chapel, also known as the Octagon Temple, was originally designed as a place to admire the view or take tea whilst walking in the gardens but is now the final resting place for three generations of the Astor family.

An exceptional home

For over 300 years Cliveden House was an exceptional home to some extraordinary characters. With a history peppered by scandal and intrigue Cliveden House has many stories to tell.
