Cliveden House

By Theodora Halstead

Initially built in the 1660s as a hideaway for the Duke of Buckingham to carry out his scandalous affair with Anna-Maria, the countess of Shrewsbury, the house has been synonymous with politics, parties and power — most famously serving as the decadent setting for the Profumo affair, which caused uproar in the British government. A house of fun for the rich and the powerful, Cliveden has hosted Winston Churchill, The Beatles, President Roosevelt and George Bernard Shaw at various points during its 350 years. If only the walls could talk.
