50 things to do at Cliveden before you’re 125¾

This year marks the 125th birthday of the National Trust.

To celebrate, Cliveden has published a list of 50 Things to do at Cliveden before you’re 125¾.

The list was compiled from suggestions from estate staff and volunteers, as well as the general public, who were asked on social media to submit their favourite things to do on the estate.

The list can be enjoyed by all ages and comprises suggestions for things to do across the whole estate, such as ‘Choose your favourite scent in the Water Garden’ and ‘Strike a pose and mimic one of the sculptures you find in the gardens’.

Alicia Peacock, Senior Visitor Experience Officer at Cliveden, who led the project said: “Our aim with this project is to help our visitors get the most out of their visit to the estate the whole year round. We hope that ticking through the list, created by those who know and love Cliveden best, will help people of all ages to reconnect with nature, rediscover their inner child and fall in love with all Cliveden has to offer, come rain or shine.”

The list of 50 Things to do at Cliveden before you’re 125¾ is available for visitors to pick up, free of charge, from the Info Centre in the Walled Garden car park. It is also available to download on the Cliveden National Trust website. Visitors can share their experiences of 50 Things on social media by using the hashtag #50ThingsatCliveden.

Cliveden is open daily from 10am – 5.30pm. Admission is free for National Trust members or the 2020 admission prices are £16 per adult, £9 per child or a family ticket (up to 2 adults and 3 children) is £41.
