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.

Unlike some other recent reviews, what has happened to Clandon Park could arguably be a positive event; you will be inspired by the exhibition tent showcasing 8 competing architectures' proposals (which closes at the end of October 2017) for rebuilding which will take 7 years....More

We went to see the house now opened for viewing as it is repaired following the fire a few years back. Fascinating to see the damage and how they intend to repair. Philosophically interesting as you realise that the fire now represents part of the...More

Popped by quickly to see the house, was a little disappointed we couldn't see the outside of the house at all as it was completely covered by scaffolding but it's fair enough as they are working on restoring the house. It started raining in there...More
