Power, Pleasure and Politics...
Cliveden’s dramatic history includes philandering Dukes, America’s ‘richest citizen’, house parties for prime ministers and visits by Queen Victoria (though not necessarily in that order). Cliveden House has played host to every British monarch since George I and has been home to three Dukes, an Earl and Frederick Prince of Wales. And let’s not forget the famous (or rather infamous) swim which ultimately led to the downfall of a government (remember the Profumo Affair?) - this is no doubt why Cliveden has the only listed outdoor swimming pool in Britain!
Discover weird and wonderful stories from Cliveden's past with a Butler's Tour where you will be regaled with tales of scandal, secrets and high society.
