In April 2015, Clandon Park was devastated by fire. This guidebook gives an insight into the definitive history of the 18th-century mansion prior to the terrible event.

Please note: this guidebook has not been updated since the 2015 fire, and contains no information on it.

 

Built c.1730 for the 2nd Lord Onslow by the Venetian architect Giacomo Leoni, Clandon's interior is the most complete example of Leoni's work to survive and is notable for its magnificent two-storeyed, white Marble Hall.

The Onslow family are unique in providing three Speakers of the House of Commons from one family. The house is filled with the superb collection of 18th-century furniture, porcelain, and textiles acquired in the 1920s by the connoisseur Mrs Gubbay. The attractive gardens contain a parterre, grotto, sunken Dutch garden and a Maori meeting house.
