Silent Space

Visitor smelling a rose at Cliveden, Buckinghamshire

'Silent Space' is a new nationwide project promoting the joy of switching off.

Every Monday, between 10am and 12pm in June, Cliveden's Rose Garden will become an oasis of peace and tranquility. 

Mobile phones are turned off and talking is kept to a minimum. We encourage you to take a moment to listen to your surroundings and absorb the atmosphere.

Garden writer, Liz Ware, who is behind Silent Space, has taken the project to several properties and gardens where it’s been incredibly well received. We hope to replicate the same success at Cliveden.

" It would be wonderful if in years to come, green ‘Silent Spaces’ became part of everyday life - somewhere easily accessible for people to be quiet, whenever they felt the need."
