Things to see & do
Spend some time in one of the country’s most complete examples of a Palladian mansion. It was built to impress and entertain guests, replacing the Tudor house bought by Sir Richard Onslow in 1641.
Since then the estate has been passed down through generations of the Onslow family.
The highlights of our stunning interiors include rooms featuring richly coloured and well preserved 18th-century furniture and wallpapers. The Marble Hall is one of the most dramatic entrance halls in England, the ideal jaw-dropping introduction for important guests of the 2nd Lord Onslow and his wife.
Experience our wonderful ceramics collections. The largest of these is the connoisseur Mrs Gubbay’s collection. We are also delighted to display two collections of Commedia dell’Arte figures on loan to us, the Lady Swaythling Collection in the Blue China Room and the Ivo Forde Collection in the Gallery.
Hinemihi is the only historic Maori meeting house in the UK and one of only a handful outside of New Zealand. The meeting house bears the name of a female tribal ancestor and so is often referred to as 'she'.
Carved in 1880/81 she was bought to Clandon by the 4th Earl of Onslow.
These intimate seven acres feature something for everyone. There is a formal parterre in keeping with the house whilst the springtime daffodils on the lawn provide a spectacular landscape.
Our beautiful Dutch Garden was created between 1897 and 1902 by Frances Countess of Onslow.
Trace the story of The Queen's Royal Regiment and The East Surrey Regiment through three and a half centuries of history in our remarkable museum.
Located in the undercroft, entry to the museum is free.
