Riddle me this…

Clues & Booze & Chews scavenger hunt returns to Cliveden with a new theme: Twilight Tales!

Cliveden’s grounds, Carriage House Visitor Center, and Main House will be used to solve clues about Cliveden’s history, but this year the clues will be found in a broadsheet. To find the answers, you’ll need to use context clues in order to complete the hunt. The devil is in the details, so read carefully!

Clues & Booze & Chews: Twilight Tales begins at 6:30 PM, with the scavenger hunt beginning promptly at 7 PM. Try to arrive before 6:30 PM—there’ll be a mini-tour available that’ll give you an edge over the competition.

The scavenger hunt can be completed solo or as a group. The first to complete the hunt in the shortest amount of time wins!

Editor’s Note: Tickets are $35 and on sale now through Eventbrite and at the door. Price of admission includes the game, two drink tickets, and food. The scavenger hunt is for adults 21 years of age and up only as alcohol will be served. Please be sure to bring identification with you as it will be checked. Visitors should check-in at the Carriage House to receive a broadsheet and drink tickets. For any questions, please contact our office at 215-848-1777 or Jocelyn Rouse, Communications Coordinator, at

    Two tours are scheduled for this day. The first tour begins at 1 PM and the second begins at 3 PM.

    Tickets are $15 and on sale through Eventbrite and at the door. Due to the intimate nature of the tours, groups will be capped at 15 people.

Visitors should check-in at the Carriage House and afterwards will be led to the Main House by a Cliveden guide. These tours do involve walking and standing through the Main House, which has two floors. Stools are available for those who may have difficulty standing for long periods. The tours are not recommended for children 12 years of age and under. Purchase your ticket today!
