About

Relax in the informal spendour of Cliveden's stunning gardens and enjoy exploring the peaceful woodlands and Thames riverbank. Discover a garden that delights through the seasons with colourful planting schemes, miles of walks and breathtaking views as well as a giant maze that will entertain all ages. Complete your day out with delicious home-cooked lunches and teas and a visit to the gift shop.

Little known facts:

1. The Cliveden Maze has almost 500 metres of paths and 1,100 yew trees were planted to make the hedges.
2. Cliveden's famous parterre is planted up with up to 25,000 bedding plants and bulbs every spring and summer.

Garden open: 1 January until 31 December 10am - 5.30pm or dusk if earlier. Closed 24 & 25 December.

Group visits to Cliveden

Cliveden welcomes group visits throughout the year, Monday to Friday.  We recommend you allow three to four hours to see the formal gardens and have enough time to stop for lunch or tea.  Your group will be met on arrival and our friendly staff will offer welcome leaflets to all the party to help them get the most out of their visit.  Your greeter will also be able to direct you to key features and facilities and will assist the group organiser with ticket purchases as necessary.  Group menus and garden and house tours available for pre-booked groups.
