"Tea at Cliveden"

From Churchill to Chaplin, Lawrence to Lennon.
Tea has been enjoyed by guests at
Cliveden for over a Century…

William E. Gladstone

Former British Prime Minister and once Cliveden resident

"If you are cold, tea will warm you;
if you are too heated, it will cool you;
if you are depressed, it will cheer you;
if you are excited, it will calm you."

Sir Winston Churchill & Lady Astor

The pair exchanged many fiery encounters
during their time spent at Cliveden

Lady Astor to Sir Winston Churchill

"If you were my husband I'd poison your tea"

Sir Winston Churchill to Lady Astor

"Madam, if you were my wife, I'd drink it!"
