Cliveden's iconic mansion house
Learn more about the history, mystery, intrigue and scandal surrounding Cliveden on a guided tour of the house.
Cliveden House is run as a privately owned 5 Star award-winning hotel. Our story is one of over 350 years of powerful personalities, debaucherous parties and scandalous affairs.
Built in 1666 by the 2nd Duke of Buckingham, as a gift to his mistress, Cliveden House has remained a pinnacle of intrigue and glamour for the elite. Enriched with antique furniture and period features, it has stayed true to its roots whilst also providing a luxurious setting to rest, meet and play.
Now, our Grade I stately home set upon 376 acres of National Trust grounds is a luxurious five-star hotel.
