Palladian mansion with grand marble hall, porcelain collection and unique Maori meeting house
Clandon Park is one of the country’s most complete examples of a Palladian mansion, built by a Venetian architect for the Onslow family in the 1720s. The magnificent interiors are faithful to the period, featuring original plaster ceilings, the most impressive of which is in the breathtaking Marble Hall. Since then the estate has been passed down through generations of Onslows.
Today the house at Clandon Park contains a superb collection of 18th-century furniture, porcelain and textiles, much of which was acquired by the remarkable connoisseur Mrs Gubbay.
While the wider parkland is still in the hands of the Onslow family, the mansion and seven acres of gardens were given to us in 1956. The gardens are home to a small parterre, the walled Dutch Garden and Hinemihi, a Maori meeting house brought back from New Zealand in 1892.
