Cliveden and the Astors


Tuesday 21st November

at 8pm


a Zoom talk by Ray Isted


This illustrated talk takes a closer look at one of Cliveden's most famous families, the Astors. You'll discover what motivated William Waldorf Astor, America's richest man, to purchase Cliveden in 1893 and how the estate became the centre of high society in the 1920s and 30s thanks to his son Waldorf and daughter in law Nancy Astor The Astor's time at Cliveden came to an end in the 1960 s after the estate became infamously associated with Profumo Affair but the house and garden continue to reflect their innovations and passions.
