A Cliveden snail adventure

Go slow this May half term, and explore Cliveden with a snail's-eye view.

  • Booking not needed
  • Admission applies

Ready, steady, slow! In 1896 a colony of tiny snails hitched a ride on the Borghese Balustrade, and found themselves transported from Rome to Cliveden. Follow the trail of the snails as they explore the gardens, make friends and have fun. Learn something along the way and make your own snail rock art to either take home or leave with their snail friends at Cliveden.
