Clandon Park appeal

Following the fire in April 2015 that left the 18th-century Surrey mansion a shell, we have been working towards the house’s future

Clandon Park fire

Clandon Park was one of the country’s most complete examples of a Palladian mansion but was severely damaged by the fire, which ripped through the house, gutting the upper floors and destroying the roof. The levels of fire-damage and survival vary dramatically throughout the house, but remarkably, we saved more than 600 items, which now need conservation and care. You can help by donating to the Clandon Park appeal. All money raised is kept in a specific fund for Clandon.

How the appeal adds up

  • The fire in 2015 damaged 95% of Clandon's interior
  • We were able to save over 600 artefacts
  • We’ve welcomed back over 75,000 visitors to explore since the fire

What is Clandon Park? 

Clandon Park is a modern ruin. In 2015 a huge fire ripped through the Palladian mansion, destroying the upper floors and roof, and gutting the house. But the strong brick walls survived, and today Clandon Park is cloaked in scaffolding, sheltered from the wind and rain.
