Meghan Markle stayed in the flirtatious Cliveden House the night before her wedding with Prince Harry.
While the house is used as a hotel the grounds are open to the public. For views across the countryside or walking down to the Thames it is marvellous. The stately home is elegant especially viewed from the parterre, the grounds are excellent for walking, and the entire place is steeped in history. the gardens here are magnificent - especially the Long Garden and the Rose Garden.
