Scandal and Intrigue...The Profumo Affair is one of the most memorable events to have taken place at Cliveden House over the centuries. A break with a difference you will get an opportunity to experience the sumptuous luxury of Cliveden, while finding out more about the events leading up to the greatest political and sexual scandal of the last century...
The Profumo Affair was a 1963 British political scandal named after John Profumo, Secretary of State for War. His affair with Christine Keeler, the reputed mistress of an alleged Russian spy, followed by lying in the House of Commons when he was questioned about it, forced the resignation of Profumo and damaged the reputation of Prime Minister Harold Macmillan's government. Macmillan himself resigned a few months later due to ill health.
