Uncover a political scandal at Cliveden House
Pay a visit to the stately home in Buckinghamshire where John Profumo met Christine Keeler.
In 1961, the then Secretary of State, John Profumo, attended a party at Cliveden House and met London call girl, Christine Keeler. One year later, allegations were made that Keeler was passing information to the Soviet attaché and had used Profumo to gather information on Britain’s nuclear capability.
Now a 5 star hotel, Cliveden House is set in 376 acres of Grade 1 listed formal gardens and woodland that are owned and maintained by the National Trust. Open annually, the gardens include an excellent maze, storybook play den for families and the famous parterre which was laid out in 1855 by John Fleming.
Take in the view across the River Thames towards Berkshire or follow the family trail and enjoy a picnic in the property’s peaceful grounds.
