The gardens overlook the River Thames and were once the exclusive haunt of the rich and famous. Cliveden was the glittering hub of society as the home of Waldorf and Nancy Astor in the early part of the 20th century.
We will begin by walking around the outside of the house and then on through the formal gardens before entering part of the woodlands that will take us down to the Thames.

Easy access to the gardens from the house
Looking back towards the house
We are now about to trample through the woods towards the river and are not aware at this point just how steep the bank is. We are promised beautiful riverside walks at the bottom.
