We had a stunning day out at this grand old house and estate in Buckinghamshire. It’s strange, but before today, I’d never heard of Cliveden House and was astonished at the beauty and majesty of the place. We didn’t go inside, but will do that next time, focused mainly on looking at the gardens, fountains, woods, ponds, statues, trees and plants. It’s the kind of place that is a photographer’s dream location for all kinds of inspiration or just come and relax in style.


Information From National Trust Site
This spectacular country estate overlooking the River Thames, open daily for most of the year, was once the glittering hub of society as the home of Waldorf and Nancy Astor. Later in the 20th century it was infamously associated with the Profumo Affair. The various formal gardens include topiary and colourful seasonal planting in the Long Garden and the celebrated parterre with its breathtaking views. An outstanding collection of sculpture and statues from the ancient and modern worlds adorn the gardens. Part of the house, now let as a private hotel, is open to visitors at limited times

    Stunning photo! Love the blue sky and the green; truly accent the statues!

  • This was how it came out of the camera, I think the white of the statues really threw the colour balance for this shot, but I like the way it turned out… Don.

    Great shot Don of a lovely fountain on what looks like it was a gorgeous day. Superb.

  • Thanks Gary, I took quite a few captures of this fountain from different angles, close-ups etc… I’d really like to have been here much later in the day or early in the morning, but they don’t open to the public early and they shut before sunset too…
