Overview
More
Clandon Park was built by a Venetian architect in the 1720s. One of the country’s most complete examples of a Palladian mansion, it featured original stucco ceilings and marble fireplaces. The house was refurbished during the 1960s to house a collection of 18th-century furniture and porcelain acquired by collector Hannah Gubbay. Sadly, in April 2015, a fire broke out, causing significant damage and effectively leaving the house a shell. In response the National Trust has launched its largest project in a generation. After 14 months of work the large-scale salvage phase was completed. We’ve since announced ambitious plans to rebuild Clandon Park which will honour its rich history, but also create vibrant, modern spaces to breathe new life into the house. You can visit the house between April and October to see inside the Saloon, State Bedroom and Marble Hall. Timed tickets are available on arrival at Visitor Reception, allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.

Hi Elisabeth Thanks for taking the time to review, although the garden centre and their café are separate from Clandon Park. It sounds as though you had a good experience, which I'm sure they will be pleased to hear. Kind Regards Clandon Park.

Yes, there was a terrible fire on 29th April. Yes, a huge amount was lost. We wept for that, then blew our noses and started looking at what we've still got: the walls are intact, nearly a quarter of the house escaped with little or...More
