Explore historic Clandon Park
Clandon Park, a National Trust property, is one of the country’s most complete examples of a Palladian mansion and a top Surrey attraction.
Built by a Venetian architect for Lord Onslow in the 1720s, the estate has been passed down through generations of this famous family. Magnificent interiors are faithful to the period, featuring original stucco ceilings and marble fireplaces, the most impressive of which are in the awe-inspiring Marble Hall.
Today the house contains a superb collection of 18th-century furniture, porcelain and textiles, much of which was acquired by the remarkable connoisseur Hannah Gubbay. While the wider parkland is in the hands of the Onslow family, you can still see seven acres of gardens that surround the house. These are home to a small parterre garden, the walled Dutch garden and Hinemihi, a Maori meeting house brought back from New Zealand in 1892.
