About Cliveden

This great house built for the Dukes of Buckinghamshire in the 1850's by Charles Barry overlooks the lovely wooded banks of the River Thames. The house, in the style of an Italian Renaissance Palace, is the third house to be built on the site since the Restoration.

The house has been the home of the Astor family and the Duke of Westminster; it later served as a college and is now a magnificent luxury hotel. The three hundred and seventy acre estate runs down the edge of the Thames, it comprises of formal gardens, woodland and water-gardens interspersed with fine garden statues and follies.

Some of the most noted influential people of the 20th century passed through Cliveden's doors, these have included Rudyard Kipling, Henry James and Sir Winston Churchill, all of whom were entertained by the Astor family.

Today, of the rooms in the house only three are open to public view, the remainder being the property of the hotel company to which it is let out. The rest is in the care of the National trust and visitors may explore the wonderful grounds with what are possibly the best views of the Thames along this stretch of the river, as well as see the rooms open to the public.
