This Italianate mansion provides a magnificently regal day out for the whole family as you explore the seemingly endless network of ornately finished bedrooms dining areas and hallways.
Cliveden House is filled to the brim with antiquity and luxury with its combination of grandiose architecture, sweeping gardens and opulent interiors which make for a distinctly memorable experience.

A cedar wood-panelled library, exquisite French dining room and the Great Hall are just a few of the many amazing areas to be found within the house’s grounds.
Overlooking the gardens is the house’s 100-foot clock tower, complete with 23 carat gold cladded statue of Le Génie de la Liberté. Originally added in 1861, this impressive structure has stood the test of time and still provides the house with water to this day.
